I've never used openntpd but for the base ntpd, you should be able to
just use 'server' to make it trust (and not alter) the
base system time.  Note that this openntpd will not have access to the
stratum information from the main ntpd but will have a fixed value and
may need to be adjusted using a 'fudge' command (or equivalent).

I'd be interested in knowing why you chose this approach rather than
just syncing clients to the [open]ntpd instance in the host machine.

Please excuse any delays as the result of my ISP's inability to implement
an MTA that is either RFC2821-compliant or matches their claimed behaviour.
