I'm following this guide to set up the rtc module in Raspbian Stretch.
First question: after the changes described, the RPi doesn't sync anymore with the actual time from the Internet.
Second question: how is handled the sync between system and ds1307 clock? The guide says:
Once the time is set, make sure the coin cell battery is inserted so that the time is saved. You only have to set the time once
In my application an RPi could be powered for months and then suddenly shutdown (removing the power supply, without halting the o.s. which is in read-only). On reboot Internet might not be available and I want to be sure the rtc has the most recent time, not the one set manually or on startup.
