yes, it is right:
ntp.via.ecp.fr is an alias for krishna.via.ecp.fr.
krishna.via.ecp.fr has address 188.8.131.52
krishna.via.ecp.fr 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.
