Domain Time Synchronization problem  with a domain controller in a virtual machine

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
¿y primary Domain controller (windows 2008) is in site A.
In site B I have a second DC (windows 2008) which is running in a hyper-v virtual machine.
This is the only DC in site B.
In VM's properties -> integration services -> Time synchronization is enabled

I think there is conflict in time sync here.The guest(DC) should sync time with host or with primary DC in Site A?And then the host should sync with the dc in this site or with the primary DC in site A?
When a restart of host occurs, it's services start first.Is it set to automatically search for primary dc in site A?

Do I have to disable time sync in integration services and try to synchronize time for both servers (host and guest) with primary dc in site A?

I am a little confused here.I would appreciate If someone could explain.
