W32TM /CONFIG /MANUALPEERLIST: pool.ntp.org /SYNCFROMFLAGS: MANUAL /UPDATE

You should just have your DC's call out for public NTP server and all domain members will automatically sync their time with the DC's.

Want to promote your upcoming event?

Are you going to an event? Are you going to be exhibiting at a tradeshow? Talking at a conference? Using a promotional banner in your email signature ensures that your organization’s most important contacts stay in the know and can potentially spread the word about the event.

By default computer join in domain will synchronize with domain controller for timing. As suggest "yo_bee" is right way to sync time of client system.

If you want your system take time form internet instead of domain controller please refer below link :

if you don't have an AD domain in place AND you do want to deploy correct time heaps of Windows computers, AND if you hate going to each computer one by one, you have to use a batch or script to run NET TIME or W32TM locally on each remote computer.

you may use REXEC to remotely execute a command, or use COPY command to remotely create a startup script or AUTOEXEC.BAT of each computer. obviously, each computer needs to be connected and accessible using local admin account.
