Client/server is better.

Depends on your requirements. See the entries in NEWS between 4.2 and
4.5 to decide if it's worth the trouble to compile from source.

> You mention that it is not a good praxis to mixing authenticated and unauthenticated NTP sources, will it be sufficient to use a key file or do I need to upgrade to NTS. Is it possible to setup chrony to respond both to NTS and til NTP?

Plain NTP, NTP protected by symmetric keys, and NTP protected by NTS
can all be mixed in one configuration.

Symmetric keys are simple to configure:
- chronyc keygen 100 > /etc/chrony/chrony.keys
- copy the key file to the other machines
- add "key 100" to the server's specification in chrony.conf on all
- restart chronyd
- done
