    First check the settings on your PDC and see if they are configured correctly.  Here is the MS article describing the correct setup for a domain.

    If that all looks correct here is a force command for the recalitrant pc's.

    What do
    w32tm /query /source
    w32tm /query peers
    show on the affected PCs, both before and after their odd timeshift?

    Anything different to on a PC that behaves normally?

    If you are a member of domain then, it'll set automacally same as your server.
    oe try to disable auto update time option.

    Thank you for the responses.  It appears one of my DCs is on a HyperV server and that servers time was incorrect.

    As per MS recommendations, don't configure your virtual machines to get their time from the Hyper-V server.  Use the normal domain heirarchy.
