[ntp:questions] multiple instances of NTP on different interfaces

I'm trying to run two instances of ntp each with different interface. I
want to have instance for each network. I tried running multiple instances
with the following configuration to avoid listening to the same local
interface by the two instances:

interface ignore lo
interface ignore wildcard
interface ignore all
interface listen <interface>

Still I'm receiving:

ntpd[2382]: bind(16) AF_INET flags 0x5 failed: Address
already in use
ntpd[2382]: unable to create socket on lo (0) for
ntpd[2382]: failed to init interface for address

Please advise.
does ntp support running multiple instances on different interfaces?
