Network Time Off

All of my users have a computer clock that is running 10 minutes slow.  They are on a domain (2000) so they synch with a domain controller.  

I reset all domain controllers but within a half hour they all go back to the original slow time.  When I do a net time on a DC it comes back with the time from one of the other ADC's so I assume this is the "master" but this machine will also revert back after an hour if I change it.  

I found a reg hack to make a machine authoritative and did this on all DC's, but it has not worked.  

It is as if there is a phantom machine on my network that is controlling all others but I cannot find it.  

My users are really on me about this so if anyone can help I would be very appreciative.
