Please provide a backtrace from the core dump.  Adjust your start up 
scripts to ensure you get one.

At the very least please provide your configuration file, the system 
logging for ntpd up to the crash, the version of ntpd (ntpd versioning 
not just Debian) and output of the ntpq peers command before the crash.
