You'd have to run it interactively from the command line. While you can
add command line options to a Windows Service, it's not something you
want to do normally.

This is what I usually do when I run interactively:

ntpd -d -l stdout

The last option redirects the output to the window you are running it from.
That way nothing goes into the event log. Just make sure that your Windows
buffer size is large enough (like 3000).
