I presume that "ethernet" in there is a slip of the keyboard.  Being
pedantic, NTP protocol messages are carried in UDP datagrams which are
carried in IPv4 datagrams (with IPv6 to be named later :) which are
then carried in "whatever" - 99 times out of 10 that may be an
Ethernet frame, but it does not have to be, thanks to the magic that
is IP and layering :)
