Problems with authentication

After switching from ntp to ntpsec I have problems with my authentication 

According to the logs the key is loaded:
2018-10-29T20:46:02.466787+01:00 minas-ithil ntpd 42773 - -  AUTH: authreadkeys: reading /etc/ntpsec/ntp.keys
2018-10-29T20:46:02.466882+01:00 minas-ithil ntpd 42773 - -  AUTH: authreadkeys: added 1 keys

The key is identical on server and client but „ntpq -c as” shows:
ind assid status  conf reach auth condition  last_event cnt
1 11755  d414   yes   yes   bad candidate   reachable  1

Any ideas?

Shade and sweet water!
