It has been several months since I used them but ntpq and ntpdc no longer work.

Code:
$ ntpdc -p
localhost: timed out, nothing received
***Request timed out

Code:
$ ntpq -p
localhost: timed out, nothing received
***Request timed out


However my ntpd service is running:
$ ps ax | grep ntpd
10900 ? Ss 0:00 /usr/sbin/ntpd -p /var/run/ntpd.pid -u ntp:ntp

and ntpdate localhost works:
$ /usr/sbin/ntpdate -d localhost
...

Any ideas?

I don't know what caused it, perhaps an update to ntp, but it appears that both ntpq and ntpdc use ipv6 by default. So, if I start ntpq or ntpdc as shown below, they work.

ntpq -4

ntpdc -4
