Yes your setup is OK.
It will be possible to query your server from internet, if it is
reachable, but there is really nothing wrong with that.
I have run my server with a similar configuration (but I left out the
kod because I found that does more wrong than good) and published it
for the pool, and it worked well.
Then I had to change my internet connection and I dropped it from the
pool again, but there was never any trouble because of the fact that
people could query the time from internet.

I think the very severe "restrict default ingnore" is not required,
and people who want to use such an approach should simply block udp port
123 requests in the firewall.
