Most any time client is going to give you the time at GMT.  You then need to adjust your client settings for the timezone you are in.  If your client doesn't allow this, then it is the most ridiculous NTP client ever made.  There are plenty of freeware clients out there, and if you do a bit of searching, you should be able to find an acceptable one.
