Thanks. It looks like the server I am using just doesn't reply when it's
sent ntp (as opposed to sntp) requests. A test with a simple sntp client I
have seems to work correctly though. I've not had any reports from clients
other than stock ntpd and my simple sntp script though.
If I want to fool full ntp clients it looks like I'll have to hack the
stock program (or perhaps the OpenBSD one).
