The fix *is* already there. It has been introduced in ntp v4.1.73, and is
still in the current ntp-stable version, i.e. 4.2.4p4.

If a "symmetric active" (mode 1) request is sent to ntpd v4.2.4p4 then the
daemon also replies with a mode 1 response.

Dave has (unintentionally ?) removed that workaround in ntp-dev, and he has
re-added it recently. However, AFAIK, the re-added fix has not made its way
into the ntp-dev repo, or any tarballs.
