CTSSD runs in observer mode even though no time sync software is running.
Cluvfy comp clocksync fails with:
Verifying Clock Synchronization across the cluster nodes
Checking if Clusterware is installed on all nodes...
Check of Clusterware install passed
Checking if CTSS Resource is running on all nodes...
CTSS resource check passed
Querying CTSS for time offset on all nodes...
Query of CTSS for time offset passed

CTSS is in Observer state. Switching over to clock synchronization checks using NTP
Starting Clock synchronization checks using Network Time Protocol(NTP)...
NTP Configuration file check started...
NTP Configuration file check passed
Checking daemon liveness...
Liveness check failed for "ntpd"
Check failed on nodes:
PRVF-5415 : Check to see if NTP daemon is running failed
Clock synchronization check using Network Time Protocol(NTP) failed
PRVF-9652 : Cluster Time Synchronization Services check failed
Verification of Clock Synchronization across the cluster nodes was unsuccessful on all the specified nodes.
The clusterware alert log reports errors like:
[ctssd(13443)]CRS-2409:The clock on host racbde2 is not synchronous with the mean cluster time. No action has been taken as the Cluster Time Synchronization Service is running in observer mode.
Note you could also see the CRS-2409 error if you have a vendor time synchronization service running but the times are sync'd yet.
