As NTP comes up here quite a bit :

The IERS have recently issued a new Bulletin C  indicating that a Leap Second will be added at the end of December this year.
The Bulletin C can be seen at < https://hpiers.obspm.fr/iers/bul/bulc/bulletinc.dat >
The relevant NTP leap-seconds-list file can be downloaded with anonymous ftp from the pub directory at time.nist.gov. 
(The leap-seconds-list file is a symbolic link to the data file leap-seconds.3676924800 in the same directory. )
