[j-nsp] NTP Problems

I'd be interesting in following up with you regarding why xntpd
wasn't running. Can you open a case with juniper support with
this email, your [system] configuration, and your /var/log/messages?
Is there a core file for xntpd in /var/tmp? Assuming ntp isn't
disabled in [system processes], it should be started at boot
time and restarted if it fails.
