sync'd with time server, still have the wrong time

From what I glean using w32tm /monitor and net time:

The time on our Windows 2000 domain controller (PDC) is syncing properly and with no appreciable delays with the external time server (time.nist.gov), and my local machine (XP SP-3) is sync'd with the DC via ICMP with no delay.

But it seems our network is a persistent minute behind the rest of the East Coast.

UDP 123 is not blocked.

What can I do?

We had some similar issues long back and I remember pretty well that instead of banging heads at our DC, just let our core switch take over the role and let rest of our pc's/servers/devices sync from it. It's not a solution, I agree,  but it worked that time..........
