Why can't I see NTP traffic passing through my router using debug?

I am troubleshooting NTP issues between my server and outside time providers.  When I turn on debug using "debug IP UDP" on the router, I see some UDP traffic, but no NTP.  When I sniff on the vlans, I do see the NTP packets on both sides of the router.  Can someone please explain why the NTP packets won't show up on my router's debug output?  Is it something I need to do on the router?  Thank you.

are you sure your using NTP and not some other time protocol?

maybe there's an ACL on the router or a firewall on you server blocking it before it gets to the router?

Thank you both for getting back to me.  

1.  I am sure it is NTP.  I can see the NTP traffic (UDP port = 123) when I sniff the traffic on the vlans using Wireshark.  

2.  I know the NTP packets passed the routers because I can follow them from the source all the way to the default router.   I just don't know why these particular NTP traffic won't show on the router when I use debug.  These are no ACLs applied to the routers.  

Any more ideas?

Never figured it out, but will award the points anyway since they tried.
