       chrony.conf - chronyd configuration file


       chrony  is  a pair of programs for maintaining the accuracy of computer
       clocks. chronyd is a background daemon program that can be  started  at
       boot time.

       Assuming that you have found some servers, you need to set up a config‐
       uration file to run chrony.  The	 (compiled-in)	default	 location  for
       this  file  is  /etc/chrony.conf.   Assuming  that your ntp servers are
       called `a.b.c' and `d.e.f', your chrony.conf file could	contain	 as  a

	    server a.b.c
	    server d.e.f
	    server g.h.i

       However, you will probably want to include some of the other directives
       described in detail in the documentation supplied with the distribution
       (chrony.txt and chrony.texi). The following directives will be particu‐
       larly useful : `driftfile', `commandkey', `keyfile'.  The smallest use‐
       ful configuration file would look something like

	    server a.b.c
	    server d.e.f
	    server g.h.i
	    keyfile /etc/chrony.keys
	    commandkey 1
	    driftfile /var/lib/chrony/drift
