Hi Harlan, CCing ntp devs,

Not sure #1331 is too related. To me, #1532 sounds more related:

MITRE still waits for my response on what reference to add to the CVE.
Do you think #1532 would be an appropriate bug report (and changelog)?
Did you already have the chance to look for the exact ntpd version that
started to demand for a nonce for `monlist` requests?

I can tell that:
 * ntpd 4.2.6p3 responds with peers to monlist (w/o nonce)
 * ntpd 4.2.6p5 responds with peers to monlits (w/o nonce)
 * ntpd 4.2.7p5 responds with peers to monlist (w/o nonce)
 (i.e., for each version, I found at least one such server)

>From ntpd 4.2.7p81 onwards I didn't find any server supporting monlist.
