Both chronyd and ntpd are often used as clients.  Miroslav wasn't 
talking about server usage scenarios, but replacing systemd's NTP client 
with either ntpd or chronyd.  But if you do that, GNOME currently does 
not report correctly if the system uses NTP time, which is the bug 
Miroslav is trying to solve.
