In my experience ipv6 is preferred.  One has to specify a "-4" on the
command line (or peer/server line in the ntp.conf) to force the
transport to ipv4.

I have one peer that is on both ipv6 and ipv4 running an older ntp.
My fingers are almost trained to remember the -4 when I'm trying to
check up on it.

       The above "From:" address is valid.  Don't mess with it.
