will give you a little more info in your syslog file.

I typically see the un-parsable frequency message when started up a new
installation of ntpd.  Leave it alone for a few hours and the ntpd daemon
will put a number in the file it likes. 

But I'm a little concerned about the signal 15 message.  It's a different
process number, so it may not be related to the un-parsable frequency
message that occurs a couple of minute slater.

If you run the command   

   /usr/local/sbin/ntpq -c peer

what does the output look like?  Here's mine:

# /usr/local/sbin/ntpq -c peer
