[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>
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.
