Azure Time Sync Service without Internet Access

Is there a feature for Azure similar to Amazon Time Sync Service which can be used with Azure VMs to have time synchronization without Internet access?

I could also find references to 0.amazon.pool.ntp.org, does Azure has something similar?

Ref: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/set-time.html#configure_ntp

Answer

In fact, Azure VM needs Internet access, if you block all Internet access, you could not access this VM. Azure VM need access Azure data center. Port 80 and 443(outbound) need enable.

In a Azure VM, you could not modify the time, Azure will auto time sync the time.

More information about this please refer to this blog.
