I have often done what you describe.

Run ntpd with a local refclock (at stratum 10).

As part of the ppp-up script, use ntpdc to bring up an (iburst) association
with the servers you want to talk to.

As part of the ppp-down script, use ntpdc to tear down those remote

And when I have had a static IP, I have simply left the associations running
and I did not cause ntp traffic to either cause a connection or to keep a
connection alive.
