We use time server for that, it's called Tardis.
It's a configurable service that periodically connects to a time server and adjusts the system clock. Pretty reliable.

every NT server is also a time server for workstations.

add the following command to your common logon script and each user will be synchronised on logon.

NET TIME /DOMAIN:yourdomain /SET /YES

alternatively you can specify a server instead of a entire domain. then use

NET TIME \\yourserver /SET /YES

thats all
