Wrong. Check the xntpd source code. The manpage is wrong; I don't know
where it came from; not from me.
You expose a prime example of why the authoritative NTPv4 source code
and documentation come only from UDel; all other caches are not
authoritative and in some cases have been modified in error. Who knows
what other document errors are on those NTPv3 man pages.
