Windows Domain incorrect time

I just took over this Windows 2000 Domain. The issue is related with time. All the machines on the domain are running 6 minutes ahead of the actual time. For Ex: if the actual time is 6pm, the machines will be at 6:06pm.

Any ideas to sync this to the correct time and make it stay that way?

Thanks,

Set the domain controller running the PDC emulator (normally the first domain controller you set up) to sync with an external time see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/216734, all the other machines will then automatically sync with this.
