where are you seeing it 65 seconds off?
i see one server 1 second off from  your PDC
is your PDC 65 seconds off from the public ntp server?

Yes, but I got that correct with a new public ntp server.    I am trying to resync my other servers and one of them is not working.     I keep getting the error "The computer did not resync because no time data was available"

that's where my confusion was since all your other servers should be getting time from the PDC so didn't know where was the issue.  sounds like it was a transient issue with that one system

I resync'd  the servers to one time server and the time difference has disappeared.

domain members should automatically go to the server with the PDC emulator role for time and that server is configured for external time source.  is that what you did?

All I did was repoint all my servers to the one correct domain time server .  That domain server was point to an exteral time service.
