What's the documentation say?

I have a feeling it only handles the DNS application (which happens to
use UDP for transport), not all UDP traffic.

You've configured your clock sync program to use TorDNS as a proxy?
Seems unlikely.

Instead I assume you've told Windows to use TorDNS, running on
localhost, as its DNS server. If TorDNS is turned off, you probably
can't resolve *any* names, including the name of your clock server.
