Help with domain time

This is a server 2012 R2 environment.  DFL and FFL are both 2012 R2.

I'm having a time issue.  ALL of my servers and PCs in the domain have the exact same time as my DC, so I think I'm good there.

The problem is my DC is off by five mins.  I've compared it to several time sources and it's definitely off by five mins.

This has always been a challenge for me, but I need step by step instructions to:

Set my DC to sync from

Set my Dc as authoritative in my domain

Verify that all of that is working

Can someone help me?  I have read several articles, but I;m still a little confused and want to make sure I get this right.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Microsoft has an official article that has the steps and even has a fixit that automates those steps. Painless.
