I'd expect NTP to use udp rather than tcp -- but unless your tcpdump
command specifies "tcp", it should see the traffic.

DNS (or other name resolution) can often get in the way too.
Can you "net time" with the IP address of the server, and see what, if
any, traffic hits the server.
(And if you're now near the old server, it might be worth having a
little look and seeing if it is running any other time servers that
the build machines might have been talking to instead of NTP.)
