Time settings not correct on clients

I ha a server running SBS2012.
On this server the clock is correct but some of the client complain, that the clock on their Windows XP + Windows 7 Pro is not correct.

In the old days with 2003 Server I recall that you could use the login script to push the time setting to the client.
How to you manage this in 2008?

Is there a way I can force the server to syncronize with an external watch?

Both the external sync for the Server and the sync to SBS for stations should be automatic for a domain joined computer.  In ADUC, what OU are the client computers in, and please let us know how they were joined to the SBS domain.
