Immediate vs no delay takeoff

When listening to ATC IRL, when they ask for an expedited departure, the transmission is usually NXXXX, no delay, runway XX cleared for takeoff. In Infinite Flight, the phrasing is NXXXX, runway XX cleared for immediate takeoff. Which one is correct, or are they both ok?

i don’t think immediate take off matters
you can do an immediate take off whenever you want after the atc gives you clearence
but when the atc tells you to do an immediate takeoff
you can’t ignore that

They are both correct and mean the same thing basically.
definition of immediate = no delay

They probably say “no delay” IRL to shorten their transmission, and still get their point across. “Cleared for immediate takeoff” is just too long.
