The ntp test uses the ntpdate command:
> Command: ntpdate -u -q -p 1 192.168.192.1 2>&1
> server 192.168.192.1, stratum 3, offset 0.000055, delay 0.02580
> 18 Aug 12:19:03 ntpdate: adjust time server 192.168.192.1 offset 0.000055 sec
It shouldn't matter if the system is using chrony for timekeeping
because ntpdate with '-q' is a simple ntp protocol query that doesn't
attempt to change anything.
You may be able to cook something up with the chronyd command using the
option '-Q' but it looks quite messy to do.
