[Xymon] NTP requirement for Terabithia xymon RPM - RHEL/CentOS 7?

Good morning,

I'm installing Xymon on an Amazon Linux 2 instance (RHEL/CentOS 7
equivalent) and noticed that, although Chrony is installed on the
instance, the ntp and ntpdate packages were installed as pre-reqs for
the JC's xymon package.

I was just wondering: 

 	* Why is ntp/ntpdate a requirement for the Xymon package?
 	* Does Chrony not have equivalent functionality?
