[ntp:questions] Service won't start on system boot

I use NTP on an Ubuntu Hardy (8.04) server. I have a problem where I
start up the machine and NTP is running, but not responding to queries.
I test with "ntpq -p" and get "No association ID's returned." I
restart the service, and run "ntpq -p" again, and get normal output.
This scenario in chronological order, and my configuration, is here:
I also get the same results if I wait five to ten minutes after the
server has started and perform these tests then.
This is similar to a problem I was having with this system a while back
where the service would act normally on boot, but eventually (within 3-4
days) become non-responsive like this, and then return to normal after
the service was restarted.
Any suggestions or things I need to read up on would be greatly appreciated.
