Same thing.  If chrony is reporting the same measurements, neither set of
measurements is particularly valid.  You need to measure the actual
offsets, using something that has a repeatability a couple of orders
of magnitude better.  Certainly for ntpd, offset should be much larger
than the error, when locked.  Is the server running ntpd?

Anyway, as I said, arguing by proxy is difficult and I'm rather hoping that
Dave Mills will take over.  Certainly it is Dave Mills you have to 
convince if ntpd is going to change.
