If you mean that it is always off by one hour, then your timezone setting is inaccurate.  NTP servers like ca.pool.ntp.org transmit time/date data.  The local machine recieves it and uses its timezone setting to hash the information it recieved from the timesource.  There have been many changes to timezone information within the last few years.  Make sure your server has all the timezone patches.

the patch fixed the problem!!! My time zone was correct, that was not the issue.... is it because I am running DC in VM?? and NTP server: ca.pool.ntp.org,0×8 , can any one tell me what is 0x8 mean?
It was time.windows.com,0x1 before I remember......

just an update, even though the DC is fixed... but the member server 9also a VM) still show incorrect time.. time zone is correct. So do I also run the fix? Is this a known bug? even not with VM?

Just an obvious note:  If the time was set under the previous timezone and you changed the timezone and/or patched it, you may have to actually correct the time once.  

Over the last couple of years there have been several time "fixes" that MS had to address, so you should have/install the time patches.

The links posted should address it.  Let us know if it does not.
