Go to IANA, look at the list of allocated IP address blocks, and
randomly generate IP addresses from within those ranges. Yes, you will
pick up routers, firewalls, etc. in addition to "real" NTP servers.
But statistically, you will see a pretty good view of the world's NTP
server population as a whole.
