Well it is not hooked up with NM but it *is* hooked up with networkd
via its native API, and hence even picks up manually configured
per-connection NTP servers.

I really want to see networkd in Fedora by default. What are the plans/timeframe for that? How does it play together with NM?

However, for Fedora 21 we probably won't see networkd by default, which means we need a solution for the meantime.
I understand that getting NTP servers from DHCP is an important feature to many people. Since timesyncd can't do that without networkd, can we make timedatectl (and the relevant interfaces) use chrony for now, and revise that when we have networkd by default? (ie. switch to timesyncd when we switch to networkd).

Overall, all the features you mentioned of timesyncd sound like really good things we really need to have by default :)
