There is an error in the NTPD manpage.

The option -L means "do NOT listen to Virtual IPs" the present manpage
(FreeBSD-6.1-STABLE) says:

    -L      Listen to virtual IPs.

looking at the code in /usr/src/contrib/ntpd/cmd_args.c shows this:

     * Definitions of things either imported from or exported to outside
    extern char const *progname;
    int     listen_to_virtual_ips = 1;

and further down:

    case 'L':
                        listen_to_virtual_ips = 0;
	$ man ntpd

	Correct the usage statement for the "-L" flag, per the above.
