comment NTP: Use unprivileged ports
@Adam is there something wrong with my answer? Initially you accepted the answer and then you withdrew the acceptance without explanation. It seems I have provided documentation that demonstrates that openntpd uses unprivileged ports by default. What more do you need?

comment NTP: Use unprivileged ports
@MartinSchröder I do not "believe" that openntpd can be configured to use an unprivileged port. This is not an issue of faith. I know openntpd works this way. I have updated my answer.

Did you really remove the answered flag? What happened when you tried openntpd? I am really curious to hear what did not work.

comment start ntpd -qg after network connection
I am confused about your question and the motivation but I do have one suggestion: install fake-hwclock on the rtcless machine. This will make life a little bit easier but not perfect.

comment Is there a program for analyzing NTP server statistics?
It is not clear what statistics you are after? You seem to be stressing the server aspect of ntp and not the clock discipline. Do you want to see stats of the sort that any server process would display client connections/ access violations? Or do you want to see things about the clock offset/drift? I will warn you I doubt you will find GUI ntp stats in linux.

comment ntpdate: no server suitable for synchronization found
They will have one firewall rule that says "Block all traffic with a destination port of 123" and then a couple of exceptions for their ntp hosts
