The Documentation snap shot for each release of NTP may be found in the
./html directory of the distribution tarball.

Documentation for stable releases of NTP is archived at

Documentation for the NTP Development tree is, as mentioned elsewhere
in this thread, linked from www.ntp.org; specifically the "Official NTP
Documentation" link on http://www.ntp.org/documentation.html (and also
at http://support.ntp.org/doc)
