chronyd is polling the refclock constantly and when it starts
providing measurements, if it will be selected again. If that doesn't
happen in your case, it's probably something wrong with the PTP device
that happens in the suspend/resume cycle. Maybe it was removed and a
new one was created? That would require a restart of chronyd.

It might help if we could see the debug output (chronyd -d -d) and
maybe also a strace.
