[ntp:questions] xntp both serve and client

Is it possible to turn off xntp server functionality?

That is, xntpd seems to always have port 123 open.  This shows up on a
port scan even though the system I have really only requires client
functionality.  Seems like I could restrict server access via the
ntp.conf file but port 123 would still be open... I don't want random
port scans to show the port as open.
