on your DC (needs to be the one with PDC Emulator. (find in ADUC right click on your domain then Operation Masters)

Use in command "w32tm /query /status" (without the """ )  to see what is status.

log on to the server with the PDC emulator.

command:
w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:time.windows.com /syncfromflags:manual /reliable:yes /update
net stop w32time
net start w32time
now when a computer is connected to the domein it will automaticly get the time.

in case settings were changed on a client you can change it by

w32tm /config /syncfromflags:domhier /update
net stop w32time
net start w32time


to resync the time:
w32tm /resync

hope this will work. make sure port 123 (NTP) is open on firewalls.

Hello:

The below command will force the station to sync with the domain controllers.  You could also specify the name of the sbs.  For parameters, type net time /?.  By domian policy the joined stations automatically get their time from the SBS unless it has been altered since the last boot.

net time \\domain /set /yes

The following will verify the name of the time server used. It should be your SBS
  w32tm /query /source  
With XP you may have to use the old command which is:
  net time /querysntp

You can compare local and server time to verify accurate by running. This w
  net time
and local time with
  time /t
or just
  time
but the later is looking for input to change the time, so just click "esc"
