From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  ntalk
  new talk
  
     Unix+"{talk"> ("new talk") An update of the Unix "{talk" program,
     old versions of "talk" being referred to as "old talk".  New
     talk and old talk are generally incompatible, and attempts to
     get them to communicate result in entirely unhelpful error
     messages.
  
     On most modern Unix systems, the program "talk" is new talk,
     with some SunOS versions being a notable and annoying
     exception to this.
