Default Local NTPd Server "bad peer"

Hi all,

I can't seem to figure out what the problem is. I'm trying to have one of my OpenBSD (4.5) boxes act as a local NTP server. The box will fetch the time from the net and serve out to devices inside my network.

The time seems accurate on this box. (BSD1)

I have connected a second OpenBSD box (4.5) and directed it to use the first box as its NTP peer and get the follow error.

Dec 13 15:34:57 BSD2 ntpd[13067]: bad peer (
Note: The time is clearly wrong (pay no attention to it)

These two machines are on the same subnet ( similar to the below

Internet <-> BSD1 <-> Switch <-> BSD2

BSD1 would also be the Gateway.

ntpd.conf on BSD1 is:
listen on

server 0.ca.pool.ntp.org
server 1.ca.pool.ntp.org
server 2.ca.pool.ntp.org
Am I missing something which will allow other hosts to connect to it?

Is there authentication?

Please let me know,
