Well, chalk this one up to utter FreeBSD newbiedom (as I originally
guessed). ntpd was apparently installed in /usr/sbin as part of the
default installation, though there was no config file in /etc. When I
built the ports version and did "make install" it put it in /usr/local/bin.
So, when I started the daemon, I used the /usr/sbin version which
apparently doesn't have the Oncore clock built in. When I explicitly
started /usr/local/bin/ntpd, all is well.
We live and learn. A new OS will bring excitement into your life.
