I think the last line is instructing ntpd to ignore the responses from
the 10.10.16.x servers.  Either add:

restrict mask nomodify notrap

or simply remove the last line, which is probably not doing what
someone hoped it would.  Moreover, the local clock driver is usually a
bad idea, I'd comment/remove the two lines.
