[Logwatch] NTP scripts and conf files?

Does anyone have the files needed to add the Network Time Protocol (NTP)
to LogWatch that they'd be willing to share? I'm using Debian Sarge,
which records ntpd log messages in both daemon.log and syslog. Here's
some ntpd entries from my syslog:

syslog.0:Apr  5 05:50:54 cn2 ntpd[28464]: time reset +2.970046 s
syslog.0:Apr  5 05:55:12 cn2 ntpd[28464]: synchronized to LOCAL(0),
stratum 13
syslog.0:Apr  5 05:57:18 cn2 ntpd[28464]: synchronized to
64.142.103.194, stratum 1
syslog.0:Apr  5 06:07:00 cn2 ntpd[28464]: synchronized to
213.84.251.124, stratum 2
syslog.0:Apr  5 06:07:00 cn2 ntpd[28464]: synchronized to 192.5.41.41,
stratum 1
syslog.0:Apr  5 06:13:30 cn2 ntpd[28464]: time reset +3.669197 s
syslog.0:Apr  5 06:17:47 cn2 ntpd[28464]: synchronized to LOCAL(0),
stratum 13
syslog.0:Apr  5 06:18:52 cn2 ntpd[28464]: synchronized to
204.152.189.171, stratum 2
syslog.0:Apr  5 06:19:57 cn2 ntpd[28464]: synchronized to
64.142.103.194, stratum 1
syslog.0:Apr  5 06:24:15 cn2 ntpd[28464]: synchronized to 128.220.2.7,
stratum 2
syslog.0:Apr  5 06:26:24 cn2 ntpd[28464]: synchronized to
64.142.103.194, stratum 1

Actually, these aren't the entries of main interest; these indicate
normal operation. I don't have any examples of when ntpd loses
synchronization. However, if these entries were just monitored, I'd be
happy with that, too.

I searched the archives of this mailing list for the last six months for
'ntp' but didn't find anything. If I overlooked something, please point
it out and accept my apologies.

Thanks for your help.
