Unfortunately there is bug in timed - even when “Set data and time automatically” is disabled, it will still poll whatever server is defined in the disabled text field and attempt to adjust the clock. i.e. the check box does nothing except stopping you from changing the server.

I suggest you set the text field to 'unknown-ntp-server' and try again.

I think there is no need for the chrony patch you suggest. In chronycontrol, this is handled by the installation script. See
