Network time out of sync

Good day,

I recently took over a job as sysadmin on three sites.

On all three sites the network time is out of sync.


Server 2008R2 domain controller (Only server on network)
Time on server and workstations 4 mins ahead


Server2008 domain controller (Only server on network)
Time on server and workstations 10 mins ahead


Server 2012 domain controller (Only server on network)
Time behind by 2 mins

Is it possible to just manually correct the time on the server and let it sync through to the workstations,without causing any issues on the domain.

Thanks in advance
