Support for in-band control packets is optional per RFC-1305. In fact,
the RFC goes so far as to suggest that mode 6/7 packets should not be
used unless no other management or monitoring facility is available
(like SNMP). That surprised me.

From RFC-1305, Appendix B, NTP Control Messages:
"These messages are intended for use only in
systems where no other management facilities are available or
appropriate, such as in dedicated-function bus peripherals. Support
for
these messages is not required in order to conform to this
specification."
