"if some alternative NTP server is to be used." should read "if some

  NTP: take into account systemd-timesyncd where present

Status in cloud-init:
  In Progress
Status in systemd package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Currently, the NTP module configures ntpd during cloud-init install by
  installing and configuring ntpd.

  ntpd competes with systemd-timesyncd on systemd distros like Ubuntu

  Ideally the NTP module should configure systemd-timesyncd where
  present, falling back to ntpd where not present.

  This stops two separate daemons (ntpd and systemd-timesyncd) competing
  with each other to set the time, where systemd-timesyncd (on Ubuntu at
  least) has an internal hardcoded compiled in timeserver to fall back
  on if no timeserver is configured (which is bad, but what can you do).

  The competing timeserver behaviour is invisible when the machine can
  see the net, but logs this error constantly when the machine cannot
  see the net:

  systemd-timesyncd[527]: Timed out waiting for reply from (ntp.ubuntu.com).
