Does a better job keeping the clock adjusted all the time.

I installed chrony when I first moved to debian.  It has never corrected
my clock though -- I still do it by hand whenever I notice it has
drifted by more than a quarter of an hour.  There is evidently some
setting up that I have failed to do.

Edit /etc/chrony/chrony.conf and locate the line

server  offline

Instead of the default IP-address use the address or the hostname of an NTP-server close to you (perhaps ntp.<your-isp>, if your ISP has one). Then either remove 'offline' or arrange for 'chronyc online' to be called when the system is online.
