while debugging ntp multicast issues I found a strange behaviour on 6.99.5.

ntpd on machine B never sees the multicast packets, because they get

Any ideas why the ntp multicast packets get dropped, but tcpdump
finds nothing wrong about them ?
Do you have hardware checksumming on, on either side?
On and off.
started with on on both sides - bad
then off on receiver - bad
then off on sender and receiver - bad
so, no improvement.
broadcasts make it through with no problems (sane checksums).
tcpdump does not complain when looking at the packets (multicast and
broadcast) and I believe tcpdump makes these checks also.
I have yet to look very close at packet data and checksums (earliest
next WE) .
I seem to remember, that multicast reception was working some time ago.
