Apple's ntpd/pacemaker setup not working very well (for me) is the reason why I added the ntp port to MacPorts.

'vanilla' ntpd works OK for me. There are reasons to like (and not like) openntpd - but someone needs to do work to get a current version working on Mac OS X (iirc the person doing the portable openntpd stopped, so the current version only runs on openbsd). There's also work going on a new daemon (ntimed) that will likely eventually be the 'best' ntpd replacement (it doesn't work on Mac OS X yet either, though).
