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
