Right, as Dave said -- it has been changed. Starting with 4.0,
the source code was renamed back to "ntpd", not "xntpd". So, anyone
shipping something called "xntpd" which claims a version of 4.0 or
greater means that they must have modified the source code or made
Whatever those other changes are, we're unlikely to be able to
help them. They would need to contact their vendor for support on
those issues. Now, if they want to upgrade to a more recent version
of ntpd from the official source, we'd be more likely to be able to
help them, at least with issues pertaining to that code.
