Correct. chrony is not implimented on nearly as many platforms as ntp. 

There were plans once upon a time, but life got in Curnoe's way. 
Anyway, I am NOT advocating everyone change to chrony. I am trying to
understand the clock discipline algorithm. It uses a lot of the special
features of linux.
