As other, much better qualified NTPeople have already written, it's
normal and intended that a second NTP process starts up briefly to get
everything configured and initialised. On a very old, very slow system
(Sun SPARCstation IPC) I can see the two processes dancing in slow
motion. On modern hardware it's all over in a flash -- if you blink,
you miss it.
