[ntp:questions] ntpd polling server every second

Had this odd behaviour yesterday and wondered if I've overlooked 
something. With this simplistic config file

   server <my ISP's ntp server>
   driftfile /etc/ntp/drift
   restrict default noquery notrust nomodify

the daemon server was querying the ISP server every second.
When I later modified the default restrict to "ignore" it behaved as 
expected (ie. every 2^6 seconds).

Am I missing something ?
If it makes a difference this is ntpd version 4.2.0.
