I think it is best to remove KOD from ntpd.
It does not serve a useful purpose, because precisely the kind of
clients that you want to say goodbye to, do not support it.

In real life it has either no effect at all, or it even has a negative
effect because the client does not understand it and re-tries the
request sooner than it would when no reply was sent at all.
