For the maths, you are right, but when you've got some monitoring tools
running, you can have annoying false positive for disk usage.
Also correct for the security, but it wasn't the question, right ? ;-))
To improve security you can limit the interfaces on which ntp runs on,
and can also implement authentication 'How does NTP authentication
work?'
