Switch from chrony to systemd-timesyncd

I would like to use systemd-timesyncd instead of chronyd, but when I try to remove chrony, DNF wants to remove anaconda and all kind of programs !? Shouldn't there be a client-ntpd meta-package that would be instantiated by either chrony or systemd-timesyncd or else ???

sudo dnf remove chrony\*
