Hi,
i get those messages quite often in syslog :
Oct  7 13:02:36 17766 ntpd[1306]: 81.25.192.148 interface 88.191.104.198 -> 88.191.102.198
Oct  7 13:02:36 17766 ntpd[1306]: 195.214.241.101 interface 88.191.104.198 -> 88.191.102.198
Oct  7 13:02:36 17766 ntpd[1306]: 80.65.235.4 interface 88.191.104.198 -> 88.191.102.198
...

note that this server has two eth interfaces :
eth0    88.191.102.198
eth1	88.191.104.198

I'm asking here because i can't find anything about those messages in ntpd doc,
and my level of knowledge in ntp is near zero.
Should they be ignored ?

Regards,
Jérémy.
