Instead edit /etc/ntp.conf and comment out one of these two options:
# logconfig =syncstatus + sysevents
# logconfig =all
The first will log more messages regarding syncstatus and system events. The second option would log all kinds of informational and debugging messages to /var/log/ntp.
Be aware that this could fill up the log file very quick. Check regularly how much is logged if you let it run with these options for a longer time.
Don't forget to comment the changed line again if it is not needed anymore later.
