I have used NTP for many, many years so I am familiar with it and also have ALL config files, I normally just delete chrony and install ntpd, then copy the config files and start ntp. All done, 2 minutes.

Chrony cannot supply time info, so if you have clients requesting time info the server cannot serve time, you need ntpd for that. I have many windows stations that pull time from my CentOS servers.
