ntpd just sits there and does nothing

My original intention was just to say that openntpd works just out of the box,
while ntpd doesn't. And since openntpd works fine for me, I am not really
interested in resolving this. Anyway since so many of you seem to be, here is
the requested data:

As you can see some of the servers don't reply as is expected, because which
servers are available depends on where I am. However some (in this case the
de.pool.ntp.org servers) do reply. Only ntpd isn't able to hear them. As I
mentioned before. I don't have access to the first firewall, so I cannot
forward any ports. The picture is the same on my machine that acts as 2nd
firewall, so the problem lies with the configuration of the first.
