server 2003 , ntp time and desktops

have a windows domain with two domain servers, one as login, and one is exchange.  My xp pro clients have found another xp desktop to sync their time with , not the domain cntrl.  How do you stop?  How do you disengage the xp desktop from that pc and have it sync with domain cntrl.  I have no idea how it would even latch on to the random xp desktop for its time service.  How could you find out?

Three steps....

[1] Stop the w32time service
[2] Run w32tm /unregister && w32tm /register at the command prompt
[3] Start the w32time service

Have you tried to re add the xp machine to domain. also check ntp service is running in domain controller.
btw ntp and client specific handled by  PDC  it should run on the DC file
