yes, it is right: is an alias for has address has IPv6 address 

It is just confusing that those messages appear in ntpd logs only when 
ntpd is started _before_ dhclient sets interface ex0, and pppd 
establishes ppp0.  If I start or restart ntpd after ex0 and ppp0 are 
established, then those error messages do not appear.  This ipv6 address 
is unaccessible in any case.
