OpenSolaris is still running with NTP version 3, but v.4 is enroute.
All the standard clock drivers should be working (I've only used
NMEA and PPS myself, with success).

I'll check with the integration team and see if I can get a schedule
for the v.4 code...  The porting and the new kernel support code has
been ready for quite some time.

My primary has been running OpenSolaris for a couple of years now ..
