    Is the Windows 2008 server going to be setup as a domain controller, domain
    member, or standalone (workgroup)?

    Hello DD,

    Assuming that that machine is a domain controller it MUST be the PDCEmulator
    DC, "netdom query fsmo" will show you. On that machine run in an elevated
    command prompt:

    w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:PEERS /syncfromflags:manual /reliable:yes /update

    With "PEERS" you can set the time source, either DNS name (time.windows.com)
    or an ip address from a reliable time source.

    Here you can find some of them:
    http://www.pool.ntp.org/

    That way it will update form the configured source and the other DCs sync
    with it and all domain members sync with an available DC. That's the default
    way in a domain.

    Best regards

    Meinolf Weber
