Nope. This is mine:

driftfile       /var/lib/ntp/ntp.drift
# If you want to deny all machines (including your own)
# from accessing the NTP server, uncomment:
restrict default ignore

I've also tried an explicit command in place of that last line, thus:

restrict mask nomodify nopeer notrap

but that made no difference.

I'm not worried that the world and his wife will come knocking for time 
service, as I too have a packet filter Net-wards. It just seems untidy to 
have ntpd listening at a closed door, that's all - and its apparent refusal 
to obey its own config commands is a surprise.

The more I scratch my head, the more it looks as though I should submit a 
bug report.

The same as I'm trying to achieve. Thanks for your comments.
