AIX to Windows 2003 NTP

ntefft asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-17
I have an IBM P550 server running AIX 5.3.  I would like to set its time source to sync up with a Windows 2003 domain controller.  Are there any special considerations that have to be made in this case or is it just a big no-no?
Our Windows server is syncing its time with wwv.nist.gov.  All other servers, client computers, and network devices inside our network are getting their time from the Windows server.  I'd like to do the same with our AIX box, but if I have to, I'll set it to sync directly with wwv.nist.gov.  Thanks.
