Description Wade Mealing 2007-08-20 21:40:51 EDT
Description of problem:

The man page for ntpd states that 

  -L      Listen to virtual IPs.

Which doesn't seem to be the case, instead it should be:

  -L      Do not listen to virtual IPs. The default is to listen.

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