Event ID 29 on 2003 Server

I'm getting a lot of 29 events on my server. Here is the event log text:

Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      W32Time
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      29
Date:            31/8/2010
Time:            9:58:34 PM
User:            N\A
Computer:      xxxxxxx-xxx
Description:
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 14 minutes. NtpClient has no source of accurate time.


Any ideas on how to deal with this?

If this is a PDC, just run this script. ntp will be bulletproof after that. unles you're blocking it at a firewall or something.
