It needs 3 samples from the source. It's not configurable.

I have used "makestep 1000 -1" in the configuration so that there should not be gradual change as system time could be set to epoch. But still chronyd takes in many samples (approx 35) to set the system time.

35 SOCK samples or source samples? The number of source samples is
in the chronyc sourcestats output. You may need to set a shorter poll
for the refclocks in order to get the first clock update sooner.

Is it 2020 already? :)

It means the two sources don't agree with each other. In "chronyc
sources" you should see by how much and with that you could set the
delay option of the refclocks to make them overlap.
