If you send SIGHUP to ntpd it will reload a new file. You can see that in syslog or the ntpd log file.
If you do nothing, ntpd checks once a day so it will pick up the new version within 24 hours.
SIGHUP will kill ntp classic so doing nothing seems like the conservative approach. I think it's good enough.
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
