That's not a bad idea, and I encourage you to pursue it.  The original
poster is using ntpd 4.2.2, so it will be a while before that sort of
change now would help those like the OP.

4.2.7 adds "restrict source" which allows you to set a different
restriction for all servers/peers listed.  So this will work:

restrict default ignore
restrict localhost
restrict source notrap
