The OpenBSD project has forked its own NTP implementation, OpenNTPD. It
seems to make liberal use of the standard NTP code, but they have
re-done many of the security related parts of the code (or so I'm told).

I have never tried OpenNTPD, but it's from the same team that gave the
world OpenSSH and OpenBSD, so I trust their attention to security issues
if not their ability to keep good time. (But I assume that this is just
lifted from the UDel distribution).

I might also mention that they have no nptv4 distribution for systems
other then OpenBSD at this time. The last portable version was released
five years ago.
