Client computer not synching time to domain controller

We have a windows 2003 domain controller that's also the time server.  We also have a windows XP laptop that's a member of the domain.  both have the same time zone set (-6:00, central america time).

For some reason the user said his calendar wasn't synchronizing on his blackberry (server is also running blackberry enterprise server).  I checked, and his time is 1hr early (i.e. if the server time is 5:00PM, his local client time will be 4:00PM).  I checked, and they're both in the same time zone.  He can change the time to be correct, but it resets itself after a few minutes.

I do a "net time" from his command prompt, and it shows the server as being -5:00 time zone, where in fact it's actually -6:00... i'm certain this is the problem.

what can i do?
