Windows domain controllers have build-in ntp server.
You can check it in linux:
ntpdate <dc_ip>

Open in new window

The root PDC DC will need to be configured to get it's time from an external time source.  You will need to stop and start the time service when you configure it

The root PDC need to be configured from Machine Clock , No need to be from External time source
It should act as NTP server also

The Call manger servers if domain members will get their time from the domain controllers via NTP using NT5DS.

To confirm on the Call manager server open a cmd prompt and enter the following:
reg query hklm\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Parameters /v type

The PDCe is time and if configured to sync with an external source then some registry changes are required as noted in above posts.
