I've never heard of anyone using NTP via a proxy. As far as I know, you
must send a request to an NTP server and the server will send a reply.
Your system must send at least five requests to the server and receive
five replies before it can start disciplining your clock.
I won't say that a proxy can't be used but I can't help you use one!
