Please see http://ntp.isc.org/bin/view/Dev/NewNtpConfFormat#Memory_locking
because on *some* platforms we can control how much memory we lock.

If you are Comfortable with knowing how your system will behave, you can
also build NTP with this locking disabled (edit config.h) which will do what
you want.  You can also wait for (or help fix) the open bug on sntp
https://ntp.isc.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=370 (And I think Anil is waiting
for me to get him access so he can fix it) and try that instead.

Note that we are expecting some changes to the SNTP code as the NTP IETF WG
makes more progress there (http://ntp.isc.org/IETF) .
