Time server setup question

I have a few windows servers and a Linux server that are part of the workgroup and I need to sync them to a time source.   Can I have one of them sync to an external time and then have the rest sync to them?  is there an easy way to keep them all up to date without them all having direct access to the Internet.

Yes that is possible using GPO's on AD. The linux servers can be configured individually to look at a certain time server (or a router offering NAT)

I have no access to AD.  is there still a way to force them to sync to a main server.

I guess what I am asking is can I have one sync to a web source and the other sync to that box without AD.

You can provide your main NTP server's IP to your windows box to sync time automatically. For that "Double-Click" on time at task-bar and then Click on tab "Internet Time" and Click the check box " automatically Sync with an Internet Time server" and provide your LAN IP of NTP server and click "Ok"

This should work.
