W32 Time Problem

I have 4 Windows 2003 Servers spread across 4 sites.  All are running as DC's.  I have one that is the PDCEmulator and should be taking care of time synchronization with all the other DC's.  On a daily basis I will see error messages in the other DC"s stating that time could not be synchronized.  When I check the main machine the time service has been disabled.  I set it to automatic in the services and start the service.  Go to each other machine and restart w32time in order to sync.  Later on in the day I'll check it and the w32time service on the main machine will be disabled again.  I have no idea why this is happening and there is nothing in the logs for it.  Has anyone seen this problem before or know of any solution for it?  If so I would greatly appreciate your help with it.

Thanks in advance!

Have you set your PDC to sync with an external time source, or your own atomic clock? See this PAQ.
