Time sync issue on domain server

I have a Windows 2003 server that is a domain server that all of a sudden the time will jump to 12 fast. I can correct the time and reboot the server - the time is 12 minutes fast again. I have to run the  w32tm /resync command to get it to stay in sync.  This may last a month or maybe just a day or so.

Any ideas on what could cause this issue? This 1 server is the only one in approx. 150 servers in my domain that does this.

Not sure if it has anything to do with it, but this server is running OCS on it.

Windows Server 2003

make sure the Windows Time Service is in auto and running..

The PDC emulator is the primary time source for the domain.

Verify that the time is correct on this DC.
