You should not use net time anymore. Now for time management w32tm is used

How time services work
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc773013%28v=ws.10%29.aspx

DCs by default use time server from PDC Emulator in their domain. In multi domain environment each PDC synchronizes time with forest root domain PDC

More about that in linked articles above
