How about adding "restrict default ignore" to your ntp.conf?

I do not want my NTP to provide the time to other ntp client.  I want
my ntp to act only as the client, that is it should only sync with
other time source and it should not act as a time source.  I do not
want NTP to listen for other NTP requests.  I do not want my NTP to
keep responding to other ntp requests.
