Sure, but the NTP daemon is not the only consumer of that data.

One other consumer is Git, which complained to me about that trailing 
space, which is how I noticed it. A minor annoyance, but other consumers 
might fail harder.

It's only a minor problem, and perhaps it would save us all time if we 
just stripped that trailing white space ourselves rather than blindly 
copying the NIST file.
