I guess the version of ntp you are using does not support ntp signing. 
You might check the samba4 wiki, it asks for a ntp version 4.2.6 or higher.


After the configuration is straight forward, just add the two lines you 
posted above and check the socket path which might change depending on 
your compilation/installation.
