I'm currently using /usr/bin/python, which is pointing to
/usr/bin/python2.7, so I don't think that's the reason.

No, in the C version it worked:

pi at raspberrypi:~ $ ntpq -c 'cv &1'
associd=46064 status=00f0 15 events, clk_unspec,
device="RAW DCF77 CODE (Conrad DCF77 receiver module)",
poll=36084, noreply=0, badformat=29, baddata=0, fudgetime1=880.500,
fudgetime2=27.350, stratum=0, refid=PCFk, flags=0,
refclock_time="dbe551e4.00000000 2016-11-27T12:36:52.000Z",
refclock_format="RAW DCF77 Timecode"

If you don't have a refclock then no associations exist that you might
be able to use, but I have two of them on each box.
