NTP uses UDP sockets on port 123,NTP does not use RPC calls as far as i'm aware.

Re: Does ntp use rpc?

To be blunt, NO!

While there are many individual protocols which can use RPC, you will find that 99% of the daemons that run "stand-alone" do not use RPC. The easiest way to think of stand-alone are programs run by inetd. (Not always, but...)
Examples of "stand-alone"
sendmail POP# IMAP FTP TELNET NTP HTTP Finger.
