[ntp:questions] obtaining multicast config from ntpdc

how can I tell what the running config of my ntp daemon is?

I can check /etc/ntp.conf but this doesn't prove much as it could have
been changed since ntpd started.

I want to tell if ntpd has been configured to listen to a multicast
stream, and if so, what address the stream is on and any other info.

I'd like to get this through ntpdc/ntpq but cannot seem to find the
correct commands. listpeers/showpeer do not seem to mention the
multicast group.

Any pointers are appreciated.

Thanks very much,
