[ntp:questions] ntpd not listening on port 123

I have ntpd (4.2.0-a) setup on my gateway server (FreeBSD 5.3) :

$ cat /etc/ntp.conf
server canon.inria.fr prefer
server chronos.cru.fr

driftfile /var/db/ntp.drift

restrict mask nomodify notrap

The server synchronisation works great but ntpd is not listening on port 123 :
$ netstat -an -p tcp | grep LISTEN
doesn't show me something listening on 123
$ telnet 123
doesn't work

Did I missed something ?
