Murugan,

Firstly, time zones: NTP works exclusively in UTC and doesn't need to
know
anything at all about timezones. Therefore there is no timezone file
anywhere in NTP.

Secondly, logging. Do you need to save log data? If not, you can
disable logging
and save yourself some space. If you do need to save log data, you
should take a
look at http://www.eecis.udel.edu/~mills/ntp/html/monopt.html and
design an
appropriate strategy depending on your needs.
For the record: the log files on my system are around 200KB per day.
YMMV.

Paul
