> Now assume that one of the remote NTP clients turns bad, deliberately configures forged time, and enters "peer <IP_of_my_local_NTP_server>" in its ntp.conf. This (correct me if I'm wrong) creates a dynamic mobilization with my local NTP server, and my local NTP server will eventually believe in the client's (now it's a peering server....) time.
  I think that this could only happen if the local NTP server has a peer command for that client. So you only need to restrict that client’s modification access.
