Syncing Client computers time with Primary Domain controller (Server 2008)

Hi there,
               Our primary Domain controller is now syncing with external time server 0.pool.ntp.org.  I want all client computer to sync with Primary DC. Now they are pointing to time.windows.com,0x1.
We have 20 client computers. What the easiest way to configure them so they point to DC instead of time.windows.com.

If they are domain member workstations they will automatically time sync with the Domain Controllers upon login.

W32tm /config /syncfromflags:domhier /update
net stop w32time && net start w32time
W32tm /resync /rediscover

on each computer in a command line - or run a script through GP

or use settings in GP

settings are about halfway down - NTPServer is your DC
NT5DS for domain clients

Do I need to
Enable  global configuration settings
Configure windows NTP Client (put DC1.domain.co.uk as NTP server)
Enable windows NTP Client
Enable windows NTP Server
In Default Domain Policy.

And gpupdate /force ?
