The NTF/UDel NTP reference implementation of RFC-5905 is "open source".
Hence NTPsec which is a fork of UDel NTP unaffiliated with NTF*.

There are other inter-operable bits of code e.g. chrony (comprehensive) and
ntimed-client (incomplete PHK project initiated by NTF).

via: https://www.meinbergglobal.com/english/sw/ntp.htm

"The Meinberg NTP packages provide a GUI installer for Windows which
installs the NTP service and associated executable programs which have been
compiled from the original public NTP source code available at the NTP
download page at ntp.org
*https://www.ntpsec.org/announcement.html "NTF, which maintains the current
reference NTP implementation, has declined to participate in these efforts
to secure the NTP software"
