>The current development code in git supports a single-sample selection/update mode, enabled by setting maxsample to 1, but it's meant to be used only in the "ntpdate" mode (-q/-Q option) as it doesn't adjust the frequency of the clock. You could use it for the initial correction before normally starting chronyd.

Hello Miroslav,
Thank you for your answer. This is exactly what I am looking for, however it seems that what you are suggesting is not working.

x:~$ sudo chronyd -q 'pool maxsamples 1 iburst'
2020-02-04T22:03:05Z chronyd version 3.3 starting (+CMDMON +NTP +REFCLOCK +RTC -PRIVDROP -SCFILTER -SIGND +ASYNCDNS -SECHASH +IPV6 -DEBUG)
2020-02-04T22:03:05Z Initial frequency 6.501 ppm
2020-02-04T22:05:22Z No suitable source for synchronisation
2020-02-04T22:05:22Z chronyd exiting

Removing the maxsamples 1, will allow a sync, but with assumingly several requests sent with a wait in between.
x:~$ sudo chronyd -q 'pool iburst'
2020-02-04T21:58:58Z chronyd version 3.3 starting (+CMDMON +NTP +REFCLOCK +RTC -PRIVDROP -SCFILTER -SIGND +ASYNCDNS -SECHASH +IPV6 -DEBUG)
2020-02-04T21:58:58Z Initial frequency 6.501 ppm
2020-02-04T21:59:03Z System clock wrong by 0.001764 seconds (step)
2020-02-04T21:59:03Z chronyd exiting

Do you have any ideas of what could be the issue?
