our domain controllers are not syncing with a time service suddenly. It's been working fine for years and suddenly the time is about 12 hrs behind,
What's the quickest way of fixing this?

Did you try to change the external time source your PDC looks to for time?  (Maybe something happened to the external time server your PDC is set to sync time with?)

i'll give that a try. I manually set the date/time on the PDC just to get everyone back online.

Are you using Hyper-V?  If so disable the Time synchronization integration service for you DC Guest OS's.
