Bug#576252: openntpd: line 60 of /etc/init.d/ntpd: invalid option '-u' stops init of ntpd on start
line 60 of /etc/init.d/ntpd, search to u near end of line, and delete u $UIGID
(or some other variable, I don't remember but it was similar to that) fixes it.
sudo ntpd -s still works fine, it's just the init script that is broken.
