Windows Time stamp in event logs issue

We had an issue with an application this moring where users were getting kicked out for no reason.  When checked the security event logs on a 2003 windows server the time stamp was way off.  Attached is the screen shot.

Nothing else in the rest of the event logs to explain this? Is the same time stamp difference there?

Yes. In the system event log it has event id 52 warning:  W32TIME

Description: The time service has set the time with offset -28893 seconds.

10:56:15 AM - That's when it fixed it self.

My guess is that the time source went offline for some time although I find it hard to believe. I'd register two or more external time sources to make sure this does not happen again. If it does, it could be that your firewall (or your ISPs) temporarily blocks the sntp traffic.
