NTP enabled? NTP sychronized?

Fri Nov 13, 2020 9:06 pm

What is the difference between these? And should I "enable" NTP on my PI? Many thanks.
I wouldn't ask if I hadn't searched an hour for an answer.

Out of the box RaspiOS uses systemd-timesyncd which periodically syncs the clock with SNTP (simple network time protocol). That's good enough for most users.

To get back with plain old ntpd running requires a level of hoop jumping.

If it ain't borked don't fix it.

Any requirement to use a crystal ball or mind reading will result in me ignoring your question.
