Time sync is the duty of PDC Emulator role of your environment - not sure why is this taking place. What you could do is to check ur system logs and check why is your PDC Emulator FSMO Role holder not syncing the time correctly.

Yes a net stop w32time and restart would solve your issue (temporarily) but that isn't a fix.

the Exchange Server is a virtual server running (VM Server)and the base is windows2003.
is the time service of the exchange is depending on the base server time services?

1.      Use net time /querysntp command to check the NTP server on the DC. Use w32tm /resync command to check if you can synchronize with the DC.
2.      Use w32tm /monitor /domain:domianname command to check the status of  DC time sources.
3.      Use net time /domain:domainname /set /y
4.      Make sure 'Type' In the right panel  of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Parameters is Nt5DS which is default and will synchronize to domain hierarchy(By Default it will be NTP).
5.      Make sure the Windows Time service (w32time) is running and set to
automatic startup on the server and clients.
6.      Use net time command to check which DC the client synchronizes its time.
7.      Force the reset by the command:
net stop w32time
and then
net start w32time
