I think you have to reconfigure NTP to use its own log if you want to
that, else you just get some basic details logged in /var/log/messages.

It seems peculiar to your machine, not FC5 in general, I just got a
friend with FC5 and ntp-4.2.0.a.20050816-11 to send me the output of
"/usr/sbin/ntpq -p", and he got normal results:

remote               refid    st t when poll reach delay offset  jitter
==============================================================================

I suppose there's a few things that could be throwing a spanner in the
works (SELinux, DNS resolution, network routing).

Something that I've seen mentioned regarding other problems, at least,
is NTP running more than once.  I don't know how or why that happens,
but I've seen it happen here, and odd things happen because of it.
