[pkg-ntp-maintainers] Bug#409170: ntp does not react to multicast
or broadcast ntp packets

This package is running on a time server configured to send out
multicast time informformation via broadcast 188.8.131.52 ttl 1
They arrive at a client (tcpdump shows it, strange enough with a ttl of
32), but it does not react to it.
The client uses the supplied ntp.conf, with server statements commented
as last lines.
netstat -g does not show a multicast group membership, and an lsof does
not show an open multicast socket of ntpd.
Replacing the 184.108.40.206 on the server with the network broadcast address
and replacing multicastclient with broadcastclient on the client does
not change the behaviour.
