You are not the first person asking, so maybe I should add it to FAQ.

Server doesn't know (in the current code) which interface will be
sending the response, so that would be difficult to do. On a client
side, there is the offset option, which can be used to compensate for
any asymmetry between the server and client clock (server
timestamping, switches/routers, network routing, client timestamping,
PCIe bus).
