I think you have to reconfigure NTP to use its own log if you want to
that, else you just get some basic details logged in /var/log/messages.

It seems peculiar to your machine, not FC5 in general, I just got a
friend with FC5 and ntp-4.2.0.a.20050816-11 to send me the output of
"/usr/sbin/ntpq -p", and he got normal results:

remote               refid    st t when poll reach delay offset  jitter
*kuglof.mostovna .GPS.         1 u  519 1024 277 390.239 -77.177 11.863
+isdn-111.uninet 2 u  323 1024 377 402.333 -36.140 2.092
+cheddar.halon.o 2 u   74 1024 377 342.345 -30.247 0.864

I suppose there's a few things that could be throwing a spanner in the
works (SELinux, DNS resolution, network routing).

Something that I've seen mentioned regarding other problems, at least,
is NTP running more than once.  I don't know how or why that happens,
but I've seen it happen here, and odd things happen because of it.

(Currently running FC4, in case that's important to the thread)
