The pluses of chrony as an ntp client for Workstation are fairly
clear. I don't know if there are significant advantages to chrony as
an ntp server over ntpd.

Is an exception needed for ARM where it's more common to find no RTC?
That is, on ARM, have a different ntp client by default? Or is it
possible to detect the lack of an RTC, and that causes chronyd/ntpd to
be disabled, and timesyncd to be enabled?
