A good place to look for information about configuring NTP is

One reason why NTP can crash soon after start-up is that the difference

between the server's time and the client's time is too large. Make sure
the clients' clocks are set to the server's time (within a few minutes)
before you start NTP.

For more information about broadcast mode and its security
see http://www.ntp.org/ntpfaq/NTP-s-config-adv.htm#S-CONFIG-ADV-BRDCAST
and http://www.eecis.udel.edu/~mills/ntp/html/assoc.html#broad.

If you want more help from the forum, let us know which reference
clocks you
are using; also post the ntp.conf files.
