The -s option would help with that, but the improved behavior which
restores time from the driftfile when there is no RTC was added in a
newer version than is currently available in CentOS.

The recommended way to delay start of a service until the clock is

enable the chrony-wait service. It uses the chronyc waitsync command
to delay the time-sync target.
