I don't believe ntpd looks for "/etc/inet/ntp.client" unless you start 
it with options telling it that it's supposed to use a non-standard 
configuration file.  /etc/inet/ntp.conf is the default.  I would
# cp /etc/inet/ntp.conf /etc/inet/ntp.original_conf
Then use an editor to customize /etc/inet/ntp.conf.  That way you still 
have the original template if you need to start over from scratch.

I will not comment on configuration of a multicast client since I've 
never done it.
