This sounds like an old bug:
From some old discussions here on the news group I found that this
could happen if the maximum monlist entries that can be recorded by ntpd
A possible way to verify this would be to restart ntpd and then check if
the command works correctly as long as the monlist is not too long.
After some investigation I've done it looks like the version of the ntpq
and ntpdc programs on your machine are 4.2.4p8, whereas the version of
ntpd is reported as 4.2.4p5-a.
It sounds strange that all these programs come from the same NTP
software package shipped with FreeBSD 10, and keep in mind that ntpdc
had been designed as debugging tool without guarantee that ntpdc from
one versions runs perfectly with ntpd from another version.
Maybe you should check if there is an update to NTP 4.2.6p5 available
which is the current stable version?
We havent heard about the "incomplete response" problem for quite some
time, so the bug has possibly been fixed in the stable version, even
though the bugzilla issue is still not closed.
