How to set time via logon script

I wish to have all my XP workstations display the same time as the DC
XP workstations are logging in with user rights and no more
Logon script shows, among other things:
net time \\DC /set /yes

The net time line does not execute... XP machines are still showing different times.

You should not need to do this - the XP clients should sync time automatically as part of the authentication process

KCTS...  I agree.  But since it doesn't is there a way do this?

IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

Been there...
If the recommended way of doing things by getting the workstations to automatically update their time themselves is not working, check that you don't have anything configured on routers/firewalls that is blocking their attempts to do so. Time updates use a specific port if i remember correctly.
