[ntp:questions] problem with "restrict default ignore"

Hello list,

I like to secure my ntp daemon with "restrict default ignore" but ntp stops synchronizing with this configuration; though I have restrict lines for ntp servers. My ntp.conf is simple as below

driftfile /var/lib/ntp/ntp.drift

server 0.asia.pool.ntp.org iburst dynamic
server 1.asia.pool.ntp.org iburst dynamic

restrict mask nomodify notrap
restrict default ignore
restrict 0.asia.pool.ntp.org  notrap noquery
restrict 1.asia.pool.ntp.org  notrap noquery

ntp starts working if I remove "restrict default ignore" . Is not the restrict lines with server
designed to work with "restrict default ignore" ? I am very much confused here, any clue please ?
