Unfortunately still no update on Debian including the fix.

But given that there is a workaround (place the file yourself) and this
bug (unfortunately) being very old but didn't get a huge crowd being
affected it is not reasonable to push a delta for that IMHO.

Also after a further check we'd have to add different logcheck files for
each release as the messages weren't very stable over time.

Unassigning myself for now but still staying subscribed and on the
Debian bug to wait if changes get picked up.

If anyone is willing and able to spend the time to prep the logchecks
needed for all the releases I'm open to review and sponsor. Please start
with what I had reported to the Debian bug, it already has some fixes in

  ntp package missing logcheck exceptions file

Bug description:

  in Lucid, Package: ntp (1:4.2.4p8+dfsg-1ubuntu2) has the file
  /etc/logcheck/ignore.d.server/ntp included. This is used to configure
  logcheck to ignore ntp messages in syslog that are not error

  In Natty, this file is not present in the ntp package
  In Oneric, this file is not present in the ntp package
  In Precise, this file is not present in the ntp package

  When logcheck is installed, all ntp syslog messages are raised as
  alerts by logcheck because the ntp configuration file is not present.

  It would be helpful to have /etc/logcheck/ignore.d.server/ntp included
  with ntp packaging as with Lucid.

  Here are sample contents based on the Lucid version with the addition
  of "status change" tot he time sync line.
