I think you mean the "ntpd reference implementation", e.g. Microsoft's
NTP code does not define the standard.
Also, I don't think this is the correct relationship between RFCs and
reference implementations. An RFC specifies the protocol for a specific
reference implementation. If you do more than fix bugs in the reference
implementation, you need a new RFC before it becomes the standard.
