We have a windows 2000 domain controller and there are  6 PCs are in the domain.All these client PCs were configured to take the time from the Domain controller.  They all   work perfectly and get the time from the DC.

Domain controller time was manually configured, but we need to configure the DC to take time from the external time source and  therefore we  have configured the DC to take the time from an external time sourcre by issuing the following command.
  "net time /setsntp:IP address of the external time source"  
command  was successfully accepted.
Now we need to synchronise the time with the external time source.
I have used "net time /set" command , but in reponse this  command,  following displayed.
" whether you want to take time from the DC.Y/N? "--- this is not what we need

Please let me know the command to use to synchronise the time with the external time source.
