synchronise on server with a internet time server.
synchronise you clients internally with this server.
 
you can use the NET TIME command, see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/120944/en-us

If I do this it works for the local admin group, but if they are in the user group (restricted) then they recieve an error (system error 1314) and the command does not run.  What about this error?

You're right.
Are your clients members of a Active Directory?
A member of the AD should automatically use the Windows Time service to sync with the domain controller
see http://www.howtonetworking.com/Windows/synchronizetime1.htm
maybe this helps

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Yes, these pc's are members of our domain.  When I use this command w32tm /resync they recieve and access denied.  I looked at our PDC and it's time service is running.  Also looked at these restricted pc's time service and it's also started.  How do I know if the PDC is giving out time?  It doesn't look like it is?  Is it on by default?  We are only off by 2-3 minutes but that is messing us up in one of our time sensative applications.

Did you check the eventlog of your clients?
During startup there should be a entry from source W32Time
Maybe this can lead us to a solution.

from another threat at experts-exchange

Usually the w32time service should do this for you and shouldn't need to use the old net time function, but if you really need it, the user needs these privs:

Load gpedit.msc or a GPO for the computers in the domain:

Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\User rights Assignment

Grant Authenticated users the following right:  Change the system time

This way you don't have to grant users Power users rights that gives the users too much control of the desktop.

After changing this GPO settings you should be able to use NET TIME as ordinary user...
