OpenNTPd seems not to support that option, so it didn't work.
I tried switching to NTP, which does support 'iburst', and now it all works how I want it to.
NTP fails as well if I don't include the 'iburst' option, so it seems odd to me that OpenNTPd wouldn't support anything even similar.
Doesn't matter though, all happy now :)
I remember I switched to stock NTP from openntpd a while back because of a discussion I saw on this mailing list concerning its suitability for cross- platform use. I think it was something about its origins in one of the BSDs, and how the maintainers responsible for ensuring its correct operation on other platforms (including Linux) had more or less abandoned it. I don't know if this is still the case?
Regardless, I originally chose openntpd because it seemed easier to configure, but I've since realised that's not really true. NTP itself is perfectly simple, and definitely *is* very well supported.
