I have corrected my time on the PDC and wish to synchronize the entire domain.
I can see that can use w23tm for a single client, but I need it for the entire domain.
Thanks for any help.

On your server make it the NTP server any server you wish to use.

Windows Time                                    
HKLM>System>CurrentControlSet>Services>W32Time>Parameters                                    
NTPServer      POOL.NTP.ORG                              
Type      NTP            


Now on all other computers/servers

Windows Time                                    
HKLM>System>CurrentControlSet>Services>W32Time>Parameters                                    
NTPServer      serverip                               
Type      NTP            


after you make this change

restart the service

Thank you both solutions are good, but I don't see any "acceptance" or "rating" button for the second solution from tjc123.  I consider both as  good, accepted solutions,

Thanks a gain.

I believe you can award partial credit or split the points, but all I really care about is that the issue for you was fixed :).
