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.
