Moving server, having trouble. Found this. Seems to fix the windows client, not the linux one.
Subject: ntpd default change

People who use windows ntp clients [and other unauthenticated clients] served by netbsd ntp servers will notice after upgrading ntpd to current their clients cannot sync anymore.
So that others don't spend time debugging this:
- Authentication in the new version of ntp is turned on by default;
you'll have to turn it off. The option to do this has also changed. If you had in your config file "authenticate no" should change it to "disable auth".
- "restrict notrust" means don't trust unauthenticated packets, so remove
notrust from your restrict line. This seemed to work fine before with "authenticate no".
Of course, you should only do this if you really need to. If your clients can authenticate, you should keep authentication on.
I hope this is useful,
I was trying to run 'yum update' on my webmail server, which runs the highly recommended qmailrocks.org distro. Well, to get it to stop trying to install exim / sendmail / postfix I was able to create a "fake_mta.spec" based on one I found online (but had to transcribe into a VM box):
