Those are two different things. Timesyncd is simple SNTP client (plus
time restoration over reboot, for things without RTC). Timedated
is providing an API + utility to set system timezone and time and to
toggle external time sync.
There are two implementation of timedated:
– systemd's on, this only toggles timesyncd as synchronisation mechanism
– timedatex, which can toggle arbitrary NTP daemon
Yeah, and the FESCo ticket was answering the question whether it replacing
systemd-timedated with timedatex was safe (probably the first instance of
two packages fighting over a D-Bus service name) and desirable (for Fedora
to keep using a full NTP client, overriding systemd-timedated’s
bait-and-switch from supporting the major NTP daemons to only supporting
