W32Time - Event 29 - We've all been here before....

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
two servers, both server 2003 r2 sp2:
svr01 (all fsmo roles, dc, dns)
svr02 (secondary dc, no other roles)

both servers are generating event 29:
The time provider NtpClient is configured to acquire time from one or more time sources, however none of the sources are currently accessible.
No attempt to contact a source will be made for 15 minutes.
NtpClient has no source of accurate time.

i've read plenty of time source kb's, articles, whatever - but i can't wrap my head around it.  today i'd like to get my monthly fee's worth out of experts exchange.

can someone please hold my hand, step-by-step, to get this resolved?  thanks.
