If you're directly connected to your DSL modem, then the IP
address of your NTP server changes every time you re-connect. Each
time that happens, you need to quit and restart ntpd.
If you use a DSL router, then every time you reconnect and the
router gets a new IP address, you need to delete all your ntpd
associations and then re-make them, or you can just stop and restart
These are known issues.
