Hi Christopher, thanks for the comment.
Ansible is my tool of choice and it is just as capable (and nicer to use than chef) but my commentary comes from my experience of how these tools tend to be used in the field.
Very few use ansible-pull and of those that do I've seen no one runs it on a schedule like chef-client daemon.
If you're using chef-server & chef-client then you are guaranteed frequent converges.
