ntpd should run as non-root.

Yes - preferrably. No problem on systems with static interface configurations. On systems with dynamic interface configurations you would lose the dynamic interface re-binding of ntpd as NetBSD currently lacks a mechanism to allow non-root processes to bind to reserved ports. Maybe somebody adds a bit to kauth
to do such a thing. Linux e. g. uses its capabilities for that.
