[ntp:questions] kod and limited

In the document "ntpd access restrictions" it is recommended to use the
restriction "kod". However, when used as it is there it makes ntpd
> Nov 20 11:54:00 testnode ntpd: restrict ::: KOD does nothing without LIMITED.
The documentation agrees.
Now I have two options:
1. remove "kod" altogether
2. add "limited"
The defaults for discard seem sensible and adding "limited" shouldn't
result in problems. On the other hand, I am worried that (for example)
local clients using burst/iburst or running ntpdate -q repeatedly for
debugging purposes may be denied the service. Am I just worrying too much?
What option would you recommend?
Thanks in advance
