well I did an lsof  and grep'd the UDP

and found:   UDP 

I have no idea what this means?

it seems to be there all the time.........

this is my conf file:

driftfile /var/lib/ntp/ntp.drift

# Enable this if you want statistics to be logged.
#statsdir /var/log/ntpstats/

statistics loopstats peerstats clockstats
filegen loopstats file loopstats type day enable
filegen peerstats file peerstats type day enable
filegen clockstats file clockstats type day enable

# Specify one or more NTP servers.

# Use servers from the NTP Pool Project. Approved by Ubuntu Technical Board
# on 2011-02-08 (LP: #104525). See http://www.pool.ntp.org/join.html for
# more information.
#server 0.ubuntu.pool.ntp.org
#server 1.ubuntu.pool.ntp.org
#server 2.ubuntu.pool.ntp.org
#server 3.ubuntu.pool.ntp.org

        server 0.north-america.pool.ntp.org
        server 1.north-america.pool.ntp.org
        server 2.north-america.pool.ntp.org
        server 3.north-america.pool.ntp.org
# Use Ubuntu's ntp server as a fallback.
#server ntp.ubuntu.com

# Access control configuration; see /usr/share/doc/ntp-doc/html/accopt.html 
# details.  The web page 
# might also be helpful.
# Note that "restrict" applies to both servers and clients, so a 
# that might be intended to block requests from certain clients could also 
# up blocking replies from your own upstream servers.

# By default, exchange time with everybody, but don't allow configuration.
restrict -4 default kod notrap nomodify nopeer noquery
restrict -6 default kod notrap nomodify nopeer noquery

# Local users may interrogate the ntp server more closely.
restrict ::1

# Clients from this (example!) subnet have unlimited access, but only if
# cryptographically authenticated.
#restrict mask notrust

# If you want to provide time to your local subnet, change the next line.
# (Again, the address is an example only.)

# If you want to listen to time broadcasts on your local subnet, de-comment 
# next lines.  Please do this only if you trust everybody on the network!
#disable auth

kinda stock...............
