Why doesn't Windows XP Internet Time feature sync with NetWare time server ?

I have our NetWare 6.5 server configured to use NTP to get its time from one of the well known internet time servers. This works fine.

On a Windows XP SP2 machine I would like to set the Internet Time tab to get its time from the NetWare server. When I do this and click the Update Now button, it always fails. Even if I turn off the Windows XP firewall it still fails.

I have checked the NetWare server and the UDP-NTP port is listening.

Windows XP seems to have no problem syncing time directly to one of the internet time servers so I would like to know why it is unable to sync time to an internal NetWare server.

Can anyone shed some light on this problem ?
