My windows 20003 Active Directory Server drifts fast each month.  Is there a way to set up NTP on the server so that it looks to an outside time source for accurate time.  I would also like it to propagate the correct time to all of the other computers on the local LAN.

You only need to configure your PDC emulator; other DCs will sync with the PDCe, domain members will sync with the DC authenticating them.
To configure the PDCe to sync with an outside NTP server, make sure that UDP port 123 outbound is allowed, and run the following command:
w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:<NTP server>,0x8 /update

Some time servers are here, pick one close to you:
