Is OpenNTPD better than the included NTPD?

I don't plan on allowing anyone to connect to my machine or use it as
a NTPD server.  I see that OpenNTPD (OpenBSD's version) by default
doesn't listen on any IP/port and seems a little more secure.  Is this
a good one to use over the included one in FreeBSD, or is there
something better?
