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.
