IMHO, the monolithic structure is necessary -- The point is to get the
user from zero to "ntp synced" as easily as possible.  An information
source that needs to be navigated works against usability.  The best
is a single document that can be read and acted upon in linear order.
Of course, that does increase the effort needed to maintain it, since
you can't just edit a sentence here or there without considering its
impact on the rest of the document.  But it seems to me that getting
one's ntpd configuration started is the single largest barrier to NTP
