Server 2008 R2 wrong time

I have 2 HyperV servers.
S2 - Exchange, IIS.

For some reason all the times have just gone out of whack and every few days it creeps forward by about 5 minutes. I assume that S1 is the time server being it's DC. Is there a way I can tell? I tried some NET TIME commands but it says that the services is not started. If it's talking about the Windows Time service then it is started because I saw it.

Any help would be great. Thanks

Thanks mate.
I went to that site and told it to sync with some time servers via the 'fix it for me' file. If I go to command prompt and type w32tm /resync, it changes to the correct time for a second then goes back to the old time. Now it's 30 minutes fast...

Is there a way I can see how my computer is syncing? i.e local time, NTP (if so, which server). This machine is the PDC.

No worries. Fixed. For some reason the server's BIOS clock was running fast - no idea how but it was,
Thanks anyway.
