It was about 2 years ago when my server was new to the pool i have  
seen around 500-1000 packets per second from a single IP. As this  
server was not the most powerfull i decided to simply drop all packets  
from the offending IP. It took around 16M (dropped) packets (~1,2GByte  
traffic) until it stopped. I hope you have a generous traffic limit,  
than you can simply wait until its over because ntp does not care that
