The main log file does default to syslog

The default is no log files.  I don't think ntpd should get involved with 
deleting anything.  If nothing else, it's an insecurity opportunity.  Debian 
has a cron job to do it.  (I have to kill it since I want them saved forever.)

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
