The NTP server may be several hops past your gateway.  You have
to make sure all those arp caches are loaded with the appropraite
info.  Usually arp cache problems are on the first or last hop, but that
just makes it all the more obscure when it isn't.

There can also be the same sort of problems with routing caches.
