Using AD environment, your PDC Emulator master owner issues time services in your forest. How to configure it for connecting to external time server you may check at MVP blog at

Quick steps- you may run below on PDC owner and clients.
 
On PDC: command to run on DC that must be a PDC emulator role owner in forest root domain.
 
w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:time.windows.com,0x1 /syncfromflags:manual / reliable:yes /update
 
Now stop and restart the Windows Time service using the following commands:
 
net stop w32time
 
net start w32time
 
if you don’t want to wait for time convergence to occur between your stratum 2 time server (your forest root PDC Emulator) and the external stratum 1 time server, you can run the following command on your PDC Emulator:
 
w32tm /resync /rediscover

Clients:
w32tm /config /syncfromflags:domhier /update
 
net stop w32time
 
net start w32time
