Interface addresses aren't supposed to change, not just for ntp.  You

I believe some work has been done on working round broken ISPs who 
deliberately, or otherwise, misoperate DHCP.  I'm not sure what state it

version, if not a development version.

You are, of course, welcome to submit a patch to the source code.
