[ntp:questions] I don't understand "Restrict" statements!

It's me, not you, but with the following statements in ntp.conf:

restrict source notrap nomodify nopeer query
restrict ::1
restrict mask peer

I get errors flagged at the points marked with "X" below:

restrict source notrap nomodify nopeer Xquery
restrict mask Xpeer

My intention was:

- not allow external access, except for using external nodes as servers, 
just as if I only had Internet sources.

- to allow full access to any PC on 192.168.0. so that the PC could use 
the server as a client, and issue ntpq commands against it, in 
particular:  ntpq -crv  and  ntpq -pn

I've tried reading the documentation, but it has failed to enlighten me
