Timeserv utility in Windows 2003 server domain?

I recently upgraded from a Windows 2000 to a Windows 2003 domain. I have a mix of Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000 and Windows XP clients on my network that are running the timeserv utility. After upgrading the domain, this has stopped working. I get the following error messages in the log:

NetRemoteTOD failed for each PrimarySource

and

It has been over 24 hours since we got a network succeess.

I did replace dcs when I upgraded the domian. I specified the new primary source in the timeserv.ini file as \\'name of pdc' (used netbios name)

FYI - It is important that I have time set to the second so I can't rely on w32time or one time sycn when users logon by using net time.

you stopped w32time service?
you set your PDC Emulator as Source for all DC's?
you set any DC as a source for your clients?
do you get the messages on all computers?

I figure it out - I forgot to run timeserv -update on the workstations after I changed the primary server in the timeserv.ini file.
