Timesyncd stop_start behaviour

  • Platform information:
    • Hardware: RPi 4 Model B 4 GB
    • OS: Raspbian (kernel Linux 5.15.32-v7l+)
    • Java Runtime Environment: ??
    • openHAB version: 3.2.0
  • Issue of the topic: timesyncd keeps logging start and stop messages and sometimes it exits with the error below (messages at the end).
    I also include the messages writen to syslog in the attached file (printscreeen of cat syslog | grep ync).
    Is this behaviour normal?

I am also including some logs that show the behaviour (number of attempts) changes.
