I'd check first whether ntpd runs in a chrooted environment or not.
When it is chrooted and syslog-ng is restarted (without using the
keep-alive option for /dev/log) then ntpd won't be able to continue
logging (/dev/log gets recreated). For chroot-ed apps you can add the
log socket to the syslog-ng sources. For example chrooted postfix
needs unix-dgram("/var/spool/postfix/dev/log");
