It would be useful if you posted your ntp.conf ...

Have you set flag1 in ntp.conf? "fudge 127.127.34.0 flag1 1"
Ah, one major point: ntp 4.2.0 doesn't have support for the 325!
Later versions do; you might want to try the latest stable development
or least pull ntpd/refclock_ulink.c out of it.

I don't think you need that.
