     Sounds like you are just experiencing skew.  I do not use chrony
     but I expect it has a parameter that will not skew and just set
     the time.

     I have a server right now which is over 200 seconds off.  I don't
     know how that happened.  It is righting itself at the rate of 2 sec/hour.

     skew keep cron jobs from getting skipped if the time goes right
     past them.

     You may want to look at /etc/adjtime.

     Then again, you may not.
