I have a server on our domain that has the wrong time zone.
How do I get it to sync up with our domain controller so it picks up the correct time AND time zone?

Run below command.

w32tm /resync

if still not works, run below.

w32tm /config /syncfromflags:manual /manualpeerlist:peerlist

w32tm /config /update

That doesn't seem to bring it to the correct time zone. It stays in Pacific when it needs to be in central. I could simply go into the clock and change the time zone but I thought the time server/domain controller should simply bring it to the correct time and zone.

i gave up and just changed the time zone manually. Any other ideas before I close this one out? Really thought that the time server should be dictating the time and zone for all machines in its domain.

Servers do NOT pick up time zones from the domain. This is by design. A business can easily be small enough to have a single domain, but large enough to have a remote office in a different time zone, thus you'd WANT the servers to have different time zone settings. If they kept getting forced to the same TZ, obviously users would be unhappy.
