[ntp:questions] Remove NTP server during runtime

I was wondering if it's possible to temporarily remove a server that was
set in /etc/ntp.conf, during runtime (using ntpq). Also how can I change
the minpoll or maxpoll of an already configured NTP server during runtime
and also turn it into a prefered server.

I've tried ntpq -i <IPofNTPclient>
<ntpq> :config server <IPofalreadyconfiguredNTPserver> minpoll 4 maxpoll 4

The command returns configuration succeeded, but the polling interval does
not change to 16 seconds.
