This is a known shortcoming in the new rc system. Luke Mewburn commented on it in a talk recently but does not yet have a satisfactory solution. Assuming there is no implicit dependency on ntpd by devfs, adding "# REQUIRE: devfs" to /etc/rc.d/ntpd should work as would adding "# BEFORE: ntpd" to /etc/rc.d/devfs. You will need to remember to merge this change into future updates. Another option may be to create a dummy new rc.d file that contains both the above lines.
