We have found that our network time is off from the computers to network servers and
phones. We need to make sure we sync up all network items correctly. What is the best way to do this.

You can configure one of your server as NTP server, sync with an external source. Then all the internal device sync with that server.
Here's how on Windows server

NTP is standard protocol, as long as they support, you should be fine.

In a windows Domain any pc that joins the domain will get it's time from the Dhcp.
Set the DC that gives out dhcp address to point to an external time source and all will be good.Also allow port 123 through your firewall to the server.
