Which package satisfies a virtual package?

Question

How can I find out which installed package satisfies the requirements of a virtual package.  For instance, my system has virtual/cron installed.  'equery depgraph virtual/cron' shows this:

* Searching for cron in virtual ...

 * dependency graph for virtual/cron-0
 `--  virtual/cron-0  amd64 
   `--  sys-process/vixie-cron-4.1-r14  (sys-process/vixie-cron) amd64 
   `--  sys-process/bcron-0.10  (sys-process/bcron) amd64 
   `--  sys-process/cronie-1.5.0-r1  (sys-process/cronie) amd64 
   `--  sys-process/dcron-4.5-r1  (sys-process/dcron) amd64 
   `--  sys-process/fcron-3.2.1-r1  (sys-process/fcron) amd64 
[ virtual/cron-0 stats: packages (6), max depth (1) ]

 * dependency graph for virtual/cron-0-r1
 `--  virtual/cron-0-r1  ~amd64 
   `--  sys-process/cronie-1.5.0-r1  (sys-process/cronie) amd64 
   `--  sys-process/vixie-cron-4.1-r14  (sys-process/vixie-cron) amd64 
   `--  sys-process/bcron-0.10  (sys-process/bcron) amd64 
   `--  sys-process/dcron-4.5-r1  (sys-process/dcron) amd64 
   `--  sys-process/fcron-3.2.1-r1  (sys-process/fcron) amd64 
   `--  sys-process/systemd-cron-1.5.4  (sys-process/systemd-cron) amd64 
[ virtual/cron-0-r1 stats: packages (7), max depth (1) ]

Is there a command that would tell that I have cronie installed, and that is satisfying the requirement of the virtual package?  Or do I need to simply go through the above list and check for each package?
