You can follow that article ^^ to debug the windows time service.

I haven't run across that event ID with that description field myself, and eventid.net is pretty vague on it too.

Usually a "specified user does not exist" would mean that a user account was deleted and the SID still lingers somewhere unable to resolve back to a name.

My thoughts are that you have a workstation somewhere that either is an imaged machine that doesn't have a valid computer SID in the domain still, possibly because it was renamed or deleted out of AD, and is still on the network, or you have a machine that isn't connecting correctly to the domain (again trust relationship with that computer account).
