OK, tell me more about this, particularly about the means (and extent) of
chrony's ability to "block" the boot process.
Given that I still think part of the root problem is that chrony is being
started too early in the boot process (i.e., before the network is started, or
at least before the network setup/config is complete), I can imagine some
potentially nasty "After you, Alphonse" scenarios, if the upstream servers are
unreachable because the network isn't up, but the network can't come up
because chrony was started first. Lather, rinse, repeat.
Usually it's better to use the makestep directive in chrony.conf, which
works with all sources.
And does it WAIT for the network to be fully up and running, before attempting
to set the clock?
