I set up ntpd on FreeBSD 6.2 and am getting complaints from ntpd that
there is no route to such and such address. It gives what appears to be
an interface card address.

As a general rule, please copy/paste the error message.

rest respond without hesitation, both to dig and ping.

The time server is not reponding to dig per se. Dig is a command to
resolve a name into an IP, so that is your DNS server that is
responding to dig.
Yes, I know, my message said it was complaining about what appear to
be arp addresses ( I think they are also referred to as MAC addresses)
I will try to reproduce an error message if I can get one to come up now.
Last night I edited ntp.conf to comment out a time server that was not
responding to pings but did turn up a dig response. The ntpd did give
me these messages, so just to get it out of my hair for a while I killed
it. Some time later I restarted it with the command line presented in
the FBSD handbook telling how to start the server. It did not give me
anymore problems.
Another poster requested I send the output from  "ntpq -p".

Here are the console messages:

 #are these ipv6 addresses? Or are they expecting authentication and
refusing connections?
Thanks for the responses:
