[ntp:questions] generating GQ keys on server - IFF keys already created

According to http://www.ntp.org/ntpfaq/NTP-s-config-adv.htm#S-CONFIG-ADV-AUTH
GQ keys are generated on server using:

cd /etc/ntp
ntp-keygen -T -G -p serverpassword

In the client part of setup it states:

GQ Group Keys

Obtain the GQ group key from step 2, copy the key file to the keysdir, and create the standard symbolic link:

cd /etc/ntp
ln -s ntpkey_GQpar_server.3301145293 ntpkey_gq_server

I was able to generate the first part:

cd /etc/ntp

lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root   37 Jan 27 09:00 ntpkey_gqkey_server-vm -> ntpkey_GQkey_server-vm.3599798403
-rw-------  1 root root  488 Jan 27 09:00 ntpkey_GQkey_server-vm.3599798403

But i do not see any GQpar_* file on the server that I am able to copy to the client.
How can it be created?

Note: this directory is already containing generated files for IFF scheme.
