Yes, there is a line in ntp.conf. It is part of the default:
	tos minclock 4 minsane 3

Gnaa, I should have noticed it earlier. Thank you very much, that was the 

     remote           refid      st t when poll reach   delay   offset   jitter
*osgiliath.gondo    2 u    -   64  377   0.2436  -0.0006   0.2969

ind assid status  conf reach auth condition  last_event cnt
  1 35877  d61a   yes   yes   bad  sys.peer    sys_peer  1

Now everything works as expected besides the wrong auth error.

Many thanks and greetings,
