The sixth field, (fs_passno), is used by the fsck(8) program to determine
the order in which filesystem checks are done at reboot time. The root
filesystem should be specified with a fs_passno of 1, and other filesys-
tems should have a fs_passno of 2. Filesystems within a drive will be
checked sequentially, but filesystems on different drives will be checked
at the same time to utilize parallelism available in the hardware. If
the sixth field is not present or is zero, a value of zero is returned
and fsck(8) will assume that the filesystem does not need to be checked.
Since you don't want to run fsck on the ntfs volume, set this to zero.

P.S. It's usually helpful to transcribe the exact error, instead of
describing vague symptoms.
