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
