[Samba] Samba domain time sync woes (Debian Bookworm)

Hi folks,

I have been spending the better part of the day, trying to get time 
synchronization to a Samba AD DC (Debian Bookworm 12.1) to work. Debian 
Bookworm has recently replaced ntp with ntpsec, and time synchronization 
stopped working.

I have logged the behavior, and Windows 10 clients first send a Windows 
2000! compatible request, and ntpsec chokes on it, and does not respond. 
The Windows 10 client times out, and quits.

It's been a frustrating experience, and in the end I just gave up on 
ntpsec. I replaced it with chrony, which works.

Just FYI.

Best regards,
