comment How to run ntp commands as non-root?
-g does not make "ntpd more secure." Instructing ntpd to ignore the panic threshhold does nothing to improve security, it just instructs ntpd to not be picky about time difference between local clock and remote time server.

If you need to utilize 10 off site USNO S1 servers you should look into putting a GPSDO on the LAN.

burst and iburst are mutually exclusive. Pick one or the other. In general iburst is preferred for public servers but if this is a local server you can use burst

comment How to update NTP without shutting down the NTP daemon?
If ntpd is running and functioning properly you should not need to update the time. Why do you think your ntpd is not working?

If you "actually" read the security notice you will see that the vulnerability is the result of configuration defaults. You can "patch this vulnerability" by adding restrict default......noquery or disable monitor in you ntp.conf

There are no vulnerabilities in the ntp binaries shipped with Debian.
