service is mostly a shortcut to save typing. If you think it is getting
in your way, run /etc/init.d/ntpd <whatever> by hand. (It also
fixes up environment and cd-ed directory and whatever.)
The -x command to bash will print each line as it gets expanded
and executed. So you might try something like:
bash -x /etc/init.d/ntpd start
to see what is really going on.
These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's. I hate spam.
