The new child process takes care of asynchronous name resolution on behalf of the parent. This was previously done by a thread, but that broke name resolution when running in a chrooted environment.
So when running NTP daemon, the following output will now be observed executing "ps aux | grep ntp" :
ntp 3661 0.0 0.2 36940 2464 ? Ss 09:38 0:00 /usr/sbin/ntpd -p /var/run/ntp/ntpd.pid -g -u ntp:ntp -i /var/lib/ntp -c /etc/ntp.conf
root 3669 0.0 0.1 34860 1404 ? S 09:38 0:00 /usr/sbin/ntpd -p /var/run/ntp/ntpd.pid -g -u ntp:ntp -i /var/lib/ntp -c /etc/ntp.conf
