Do you invoke the (chronyc) "trimrtc" command?  (If this works, you
probably want to "writertc" as well.)

Does your computer have a way to get IP addresses of external NTP servers
when chronyd starts (even if the network is down)?  I believe that
otherwise chronyd forgets about those servers and never tries to contact
