How can I check to see how my NTP source is configured on my DC? I keep getting a W32Time event in my system log asking for a time source. I know that you can sync your NTP server to the CMOS clock and you'll get this event as a result. So how do I check the configuration?

Also, if I want to go ahead and sync it to an outside source:

- Where can I get a list of reliable public NTP servers?

- Do I need to "un-sync" it from the CMOS clock (if it's set up that way) before I configure the outside source?
