NAME¶systemd-time-wait-sync.service, systemd-time-wait-sync - Wait Until Kernel Time Synchronized
DESCRIPTION¶systemd-time-wait-sync is a system service that delays the start of units that depend on time-sync.target until the system time has been synchronized with an accurate time source by systemd-timesyncd.service.
systemd-timesyncd.service notifies on successful synchronization. systemd-time-wait-sync also tries to detect when the kernel marks the time as synchronized, but this detection is not reliable and is intended only as a fallback for other services that can be used to synchronize time (e.g., ntpd, chronyd).
