Whatever your views on the first two, I strongly discourage the latter
unless you have very specific functionality beyond Chrony's capability. The
original ntpd has a very large attack surface. Plus Chrony has some nice
additional features. Read more about Chrony here: https://opensource.com/article/18/12/manage-ntp-chrony
