Windows Time sever error 50 on Server SP2

I have set my Windows Time Service to pull time from an outside source and it has been working correctly for months. Starting a few days ago whenever it polls the extrernal source (every two hours) the following error is entered in the event log:

The time service detected a time difference of greater than 1 milliseconds  for 900 seconds. The time difference might be caused by synchronization with  low-accuracy time sources or by suboptimal network conditions. The time service is no longer synchronized and cannot provide the time to other clients or update  the system clock. When a valid time stamp is received from a time service  provider, the time service will correct itself.

I have tried changing external time servers. When I do that it can succesfuly poll it the first time, but two hours later when it polls again the same error appears. Is there a wat to change the time difference tolerated to higher then 1 millisecond?

Look over this article.  Also, there is a reigstry import that will configure your time source automatically for you if you want to try to see if this fixes your problem.
