I use Atomic Clock to do this job on my 2003 servers

arent all member servers of a domain configured to use the dc for this?  otherwise the time would be wayy off right?

That is correct. So you going to need to set one of your dc's to point at some external time source using either the atomic clock or similiar software as smckellar83 suggested or use net time /setsntp to point at an external time server.

There is a more technical answer but as I understand it this is part of the windows time service is going to keep dc,member servers and workstations are going to try and keep in sync.
