    Accepted Solution

    You should not use net time anymore. Now for time management w32tm is used
    Check how to manage time services on domain controllers

    How time services work

    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
