W32tm configuration

In my network (SBS 2011) I run two PC's that require time critical timings (Radio Station).
(Previously we used SP time on client PC's for sync operations before we connected to a domain.)  I understand as part of the domain they sync their clocks with the server.

My questions are:
1. How often does the server sync with windows time server and can it be adjusted?
2. How often does the client PC's sync with the server and can this be adjusted?
3. On the Server & client PC's should the Windows Time Service be set to manual or Automatic?

I have tried using "w32tm /resync" command but get an general Access denied error

Suggestions would be most appreciated.

I do the IT and engineering at a radio station, and we have always done our time syncs from a satellite source. Do you run any syndicated content from Cumulus, Premiere, Westwood, etc? If so, your automation should be able to do a time sync from one of these networks. For instance, Cumulus provides a time sync closure at 45 minutes past every hour.

What automation system are you running? If you could get one of your automation machines to display the correct time, then it can become the time sync source for the rest of your network.

Luke we are based i the UK and the only satellite source we use in Sky News. I will check if they provide a sync closure. FYI we use Myriad V3.6 for our Studio & Playout services.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
