Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 104820
ntpd initscript mangles firewall

Description of problem:
During startup, the sed cruft that creates the list of timeservers does not
properly parse a valid ntp.conf.
use the full server syntax in ntp.conf:
server 10.10.10.10 minpoll 7 maxpoll 12
This is untested, but all that sed madness could probably be replaced with
something a bit more simple and direct like this:
Also, upon review, it looks to me like you have another bug. You don't allow
any host with 127 followed by any character in its name.
