You want to set it up as a server (see the section "PRIMARY CLOCK SUPPORT" in 
the xntpd man page, and the "README.refclocks" file in 
/usr/src/usr.sbin/xntpd/doc).  Something like

fudge stratum 12

Don't use multicast mode (broadcast mode is okay) with this setup.  Dunno why, 
but README.refclocks says "*NEVER NEVER*"...
