Here's the article I used to configure my external time source on a Server 2008 R2 DC.

Just replace the DNS name with whatever you want to sync to.

1. open the default UDP 123 port (in- and outbound) on your firewall.

2. Stop the W32Time service: C:\>net stop w32time

3. Configure the external time sources, type: C:\> w32tm /config /syncfromflags:manual /manualpeerlist:”0.pool.ntp.org, 1.pool.ntp.org, 2.pool.ntp.org”

(replace with your preferred ntp address)

3. Start the w32time service: C:\>net start w32time

The windows time service should begin synchronizing the time. You can check the external NTP servers in the time configuration by typing: C:\>w32tm /query /configuration

Check the Event Viewer for any errors.
