When xntpd tries to bind to port 123 on your host, it finds the port in
use.  You can find out what process is already bound to the port with:

	sockstat |grep 123

You may get a few false hits, but you'll be looking for something like:

USER	COMMAND	PID	FD	PROTO	LOCAL ADDRESS	FOREIGN ADDRESS
foo	foo	255	0	tcp	*.123		*.*

It's quite possible that you're just trying to start xntpd from the
command-line when it's already been started up at boot time. :-)

Ciao,
Sheldon.
