a non domain server to sync to a domain for time

We have a stand alone server that is not on the internet, and due to security will not be directly joined to the domain or internet. The stand alone server currently has a external clock that keeps time, it however in the recent past has started to drift. The main domain is sync to an external internet source. I guess my question is can we run an ethernet cable to the stand alone server without joining the domain and still get our time to sync to the standalone and keep correct time, and how is this done through the registery.

If the stand-alone server can access UDP port 123 on a DC, then that should be possible.
Open a command prompt, enter the following commands (obviously replacing with the IP address of the DC):

w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:,0x1 /syncfromflags:MANUAL /update
w32tm /resync
