[ntp:questions] Unable to get time from NTP server

    I have a machine that is dedicated to providing NTP service.  When I 
upgrade the operating system on that machine from FreeBSD 4.10 to FreeBSD 
5.3, it seems that the machine is no longer responding to time requests.  I 
have used ntpdc to check the status of the server and I have tried to 
restart the server to no avail.  There just is not any response from the 
server at all.  I'm running the server with the following information below. 
There are no errors in the log, and the server is running.  Any ideas?

/usr/sbin/ntpd -c /etc/ntp.conf -p /var/run/ntpd.pid
