I have noticed recently many of my client pc's have had this same event error. I will post below
 workstationwe have a 2003 sbs pdc. and 2008r2 standard server dc. All the FSMO roles are on the 2003 server. Any input will be much appreciated. We have a logon script line set as net time set \\2008 server /set /yes.
I wonder if the 2003sbs should be the time server? Does this really matter which of the two servers set time for clients?

Clients by default will get their time from the DC, and DC will get its time from the PDC.  The answer to your question is yes, the clients should be getting their time from the SBS server
