I tried to understand the relation between chrony, timedatectl, dhcp

I regularily use a LAN connection, WiFi connections and LTE
connections. In every case the network information is fetched via
dhcp. Do I need chrony in this environment? Or is the systemd
timedatectl service sufficient?
That depends on your requirements, how accurate do you need laptop time
to be? chrony sounds like it would be fine for you.
If I need chrony, how does chrony get the ntp server
dhcp? I don't want to change it manually in chrony.conf.
The dhcp infos are written to a file, for instance:
contains lines of "variable=value". Somehow chromy grabs hold of that.
Probably slightly different with NetworkManager.
