In my Buster system the situation is like this:

~$ apt-cache policy ntp
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 1:4.2.8p10+dfsg-6
  Version table:
     1:4.2.8p10+dfsg-6 500
        500 http://ftp.tr.debian.org/debian testing/main amd64 Packages
     1:4.2.8p10+dfsg-3+deb9u1 500
        500 file:/sdb6/software/debian-9.2.1-amd64-DVD-1 stretch/main
amd64 Packages

Version 1:4.2.8p10+dfsg-3+deb9u1 is on the Stretch installation DVD
(the bottom line) and the latest version in Buster repo is
1:4.2.8p10+dfsg-6 which do exist in my mirror
( http://ftp.tr.debian.org/debian/pool/main/n/ntp/ )

So, I think it seems like your update procedure didn't work for some
reason, or you might have somehow pinned ntp package (you can check in
Synaptic if ntp is "locked") to its original "deb9u1" version.
