I read this and did exactly that:

Start-Date: 2017-06-07  12:58:22
Install: […], chrony:i386 (1.30-2+deb8u2), […]

I looked at, but didn't change, the configuration file.

Two days later, the laptop¹ was still running about five seconds
slow, so:

Start-Date: 2017-06-09  17:39:56
Purge: […], chrony:i386 (1.30-2+deb8u2), […]

Start-Date: 2017-06-09  17:43:19
Install: […], ntp:i386 (4.2.6.p5+dfsg-7+deb8u2)

I looked at, but didn't change, the configuration file.

By the time I had brought up two swissclocks (from my server
and other laptop) all three second hands were marching in step
(and within one second of the radio wall clock).

¹ had been "running free".

Cheers,
David.
