Thanks Lowell, I tried commenting out everything and then adding in 1
line at a time. Turns out it is a problem with the very first server in
the list. If I remove it then ntpd starts perfectly.
This is rather odd as I still have a Linux box using the original file
with no problems. It is also add that the result is a core dump rather
than a nice error message in the syslog. But such is life.
