Yes, NTP has been running for years using IPv6. Most of the nodes in the
test flock run NTP with IPv6 as well as IPv4. Last year I finished
making major changes to the IPv6 multicasting code.

 Also, do the Feds mandate that government networks use NTP?

I don't know if it is a requirement but I would hope so.
