Don't be lazy. Setup an NTP server on the management network.  Heck run it on the RADIUS server itself.

If you're still intent on being a terrible sysadmin:

preacct {
	update request {
		Event-Timestamp := "%T"

- to overwrite the timestamp in the request.

It's a bad idea if you care about accurate timestamps, because when the packet is processed != when the event happened.
