Azure App Service for Linux - time server setup

I'd like to have some control about the time server sync fo the App Service I'm running on. Or, if that's not possible, get some information to know what it exactly is doing currently. There is some information available about Windows app services but I didn't find anything anywhere about Linux App Services.

As App Service containers sync time with their host, I'd like to find some information about what time servers this host links with. Is this available anywhere?

    Thanks! For Azure app service on linux you need to set TZ variable in Application settings.

    Once saved you, you can check this by opening SSH session.

    Can I also get some information about the backing timeservers itself? ie the container syncs it's time with the infrastructure presumably. But what time server does the infrastructure use - is this some default timepool?

    Thank you
