net stop w32time
w32tm /config /syncfromflags:manual /manualpeerlist:”0.north-america.pool.ntp.org, 1.north-america.pool.ntp.org, 2.north-america.pool.ntp.org”
w32tm /config /reliable:yes
net start w32time

Open in new window

Hmm - from my experiences, the W32time service is sometimes a real hassle if used with NTP time sources.

My tip would be to just disable W32time on the systems and install a native NTP client, i.e. one of the ports for Windows listed on the ntp.org link page.

Here's an example of a NTP configuration file (ntp.conf) with several server entries from the "worldwide" ntp pool:
server 0.pool.ntp.org iburst
server 1.pool.ntp.org iburst
server 2.pool.ntp.org iburst
server 3.pool.ntp.org iburst

driftfile %windir%\\ntp.drift
logfile C:\temp\ntp.log

Open in new window

There are regional (roughly "continental") groups of servers, too.

Additional tip: I've written an article regarding NTP, maybe it could help.
