Description of problem:
If the internet connection reconnects and gets a new ip address the 
next connect to the time servers fail.
/var/log/messages sais:
send to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx: invalid argument

restarting ntpd is the only way to fix this problem

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. use ntpd on an internet connection with dynamic ip
2. kill and reconnect the internet connection

Actual Results:  ntpd stays alive but doesn't work as expected anymore

Expected Results:  ntpd should recognise the new internet connection 
correctly and not stop to syncronise with the time servers
