setting up a NTP server for our DC

Been having an issue with our DC losing time so I want to configure it with an external time server online. I have found the commands to do it. w32tm /config ..ext
but I don't know which time server I should configure it with Im in CST time zone.

Thanks

I would take a look here:

http://www.pool.ntp.org/en/

I've used their NTP server pool on many occasions.

I seen that site also I noticed that it says you should you your zone instead of the default
server 0.north-america.pool.ntp.org
         server 1.north-america.pool.ntp.org
         server 2.north-america.pool.ntp.org
         server 3.north-america.pool.ntp.org

I was thinking there maybe something different that I wasn't finding, I will try these and see how it works
Using the North America servers should be most sufficient for you (assuming you're in North America). They refer to zones due to latency, if you update from a server on the other side of the world, it would take quite a bit of time.
