This is from a stretch system:

  $ /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_ntp_peer -H localhost -v
  3 candidate peers available
  synchronization source found
  Getting offset, jitter and stratum for peer d53
  parsing offset from peer d53: 0.000473
  NTP OK: Offset 0.000473 secs|offset=0.000473s;60.000000;120.000000;

Does your /etc/ntp.conf include the IP for your monitoring system to 
allow it to interrogate the ntp server more closely?

Kind Regards,
