NTP Time Server on Domain Controller

I have a 2003 Server where i manually setup the NTP time server on it. I want to add a new 2008 server and promote it to a domain controller and demote the old 2003 server. If I do this will the NTP time sync replicate over to the new server or do i have to manually set it up again?

Is this the PDC e in the forest root?    The NTP registry settings will not replicate.

As other suggested you need to manually configured the same.

Configure authorative time server on the PDC role holder server below is the KB article for the same.http://msmvps.com/blogs/acefekay/archive/2009/09/18/configuring-the-windows-time-service-for-windows-server.aspx

If the server is virtual(VM) server then see this too.

As you are promoting win2008 server in existing domain see below link
