Can Windows Server 2008 display the correct system time?

The server is always 3-4 minutes fast.  Can it ever get the current time correct to the minute?

I understand the leeway can be as much as 5 minutes, but I mean, in this day and age, can it at least get the current time?

Exchange 2010 also runs on the same server (if that makes any difference).

On the server run this this command this will sync with the proper DC that holds the PDC emulator role.

Can you try syncing it up with a different time server than the one you're currently on?

I would almost say change the battery as that can cause the time to display incorrectly, but I've only seen it lose time from that, not gain.

Are the servers running virtual machines by chance? If they are you need to uncheck Time Sync with host on the virtual machine settings

I manually changed the time time on the server.  Where do I go to sync with another time server?
