Why do you need to send this information via syslog to a database?

Parsing tcpdump doesn't constitute much work; I've got scripts which deal with NTP traffic at 500 - 2000+ requests per second without consuming much resources...although monitoring NTP takes noticeably more work than ntpd itself needs to provide time.

It's the other requirements being added which strike me as heavy-weight.
