Does this just happen occasionally, or all the time?  It looks like the
SYN/ACK packet is getting rejected by the stateful filter and is thus
showing up in the log.  I wonder if the short time delta has something to
do with it.

Msntp doesn't write logs, except in some fatal error cases.  It can write
various levels of debugging output to its *console*, but that's different.  
Perhaps you're confusing it with "real" NTP.
