They're apples and oranges.

XFS on linux is from the original XFS sources (as ported from Irix by
SGI). Linux NTFS however, is a new implementation (ie. it's not ported
code from Windows NT!)

There may be bugs in XFS that have resulted from the port, but it would
contain far less sematic bugs than reiserfs.
