An SNTP question

We have a Windows 2003 domain with SNTP set on the PDC to reference an external time server on the Internet.  We also have two Windows 2K servers running in a seperate workgroup for VoIP.  Is it possible to point these two workgroup servers at the PDC for SNTP.......and make the setting permanent?

correct. As long as you don't have any firewall in between preventing NTP.

It is the same as when you did you pointed your PDC to an external time server.  Can your workgroups route to your PDC?

Okay.....so what you're saying is.....we can setup the WTS on the workgroup servers even though they are not domain controllers......and have them recognize the PDC on the domain as the authoritative time source.  Right?

...and yes, the workgroup servers can route to the PDC and the domain.

Then your workgroup servers will use the PDC just like you have your PDC using an external time source.  No real difference.
