Thanks Kurt, on further investigation I realize that the ntpdate package
does not distribute an ntp.conf file, blank or otherwise. I think the
blank ntp.conf file I observe is a symptom of bug #397648, which has
been forwarded upstream:

Unfortunately neither bug #397648 nor the upstream bug show any recent
activity : (

After deleting the blank ntp.conf file and without manually
reconfiguring /etc/default/ntpdate, I can run ntpdate-debian
