Most of it is really just personal preference.  I prefer uci because
it can provide more structured access/manipulation of the state, e.g.

 - disable those ntpservers on interface down
 - when it comes to ntpservers from multiple dhcp interfaces
 - the state can be easily checked with uci command if something went wrong

These can of course also be done with procd data, but uci is already there...
