[What packet types do we support?]

man ntp.conf says:
           NTP peer mode has been removed for security reasons. peer is now
           just an alias for the server keyword. See above.

It's not clear what "has been removed" means.  Just the server setup command 
or  support for the packet types.

I added a peer line to an instance of ntp classic pointing at a server 
running ntpsec.  It gets a respnose.  mrulist says it's sending mode 1 and 
receiving mode 2.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
