Please do not use the ntp working group mailing list for questions like
this. It has nothing to do with the IETF. Use questions or hackers instead.

You need to provide a lot more information. For example, what O/S? What
hardware? What does the configuration file look like?  What version of
NTP? 4.2 does not exist. 4.2.0a ansd 4.2.9b exist.

The is a problem with recvbuff limits but it's not clear in what way
they're related. Do you have any refclocks on your hardware?
