I have two DC on my network, one PDC.  I set up the PDC time to sync with time.windows.com,0x1 and the time update quickly on the server.  I went to my other DC (server 2012) and the time has not update after a few hour, still shows about 3-4 minutes behind.  I tried pointing the DC to the PDC as well as pointing it to the time.windows.com but the time will not update.  I tired stopping the time services, no change.  Any thoughts?  Here is some data from my two DCs.  Thanks

PDC - which updated fine (DHL1P842) Hyper-V Host Server
