How do I setup SBS 2011 to sync time with PC's in my company network?

Time on SBS 2011 is correct but all PCs time are 3 hours ahead.  It happened when I joined all to domain.  Is it being pushed through Group Policy by default?  Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks.

I noticed that your question lists your location as "eastern." The default for any OS installation from MS is to have the "Pacific" timezone, so if the person setting up the server was clicking through the initial setup too quickly, set the time but *didn't* change the timezone, the server thinks it is in Redmond (or California if you must) where your desktops are probably set up properly in Atlantic City (example, clearly)...and in such a scenario, a server saying it is 3:30PM in Seattle would have desktops reporting 3 hours later, exactly as you describe.

I'm really not saying anything new that others haven't already posted, just explaining it in a way that may make more sense. Check the server timezone first, that is the likely culprit.

Make sure that your time zone settings on the PC match those of the server maybe?

All domain workstations sync their time from the domain controller (the SBS).  Check the time zone settings on a workstation to make sure it's set correctly.  Then set the time manually and see if if reverts back to 3 hours ahead after a reboot.
There are group policy settings for time, but usually these aren't set, particularly in an SBS environment.

your client systems should sync right after logining into the domain the first time.
if not, what OS are they running?

Problem fixed.  Time zone was set for Pacific on SBS 2011 but the time was set correct.  I assumed it was set for Eastern.  Thanks Guys.
