NTP-4.2.4p7

 I would like to submit a change for consideration . It addresses a dead
link in the sample configuration for NTP-4.2.4p7 which gives a confusing
entry in the logs:

Nov 30 13:36:15 eagle ntpd_initres[11940]: host name not found: 
tock.nml.csir.co.za
Nov 30 13:36:15 eagle ntpd_initres[11940]: parent died before we 
finished, exiting

It actually does the update but seems to indicate that something failed.
Attached is  svn diff .

 I'm new to this so please let me know if I err.
