When I (and another person) query using a simple sntp client then it seems
to work okay. All that my client is is the msntp  program slightly
(about 4 lines) modified to always return the same time and to listen on a
different port. The iptables rule is just:
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p udp --dport 123 -d 126.96.36.199 -i eth0 -j
REDIRECT --to-port 11123
The server definately notices the queries coming in and complains they are
the wrong length (can't check the exact error message from here). So I am
suspecting a bug with msntp.
I've not had people try anything other than standard ntpd[ate] and the
python script against it though.
