My PCD's time was 7 minutes fast. So I changed the clock to the correct time. My other domain controlers, member servers, and pc's have not syncronized to the same time as the PCD. How long should sycronization take until all computers are to the same time again?

They should eventually - may take a while though. if you configure the PDC emulator to sync with an internet time source you should never need to set the time again - see http://www.howtonetworking.com/Windows/timeservice1.htm

BTW, the list above should be used when configuring your server as a time server as KCTS mentioned. ;)
