Hi All,

I've got about 6 different AD sites under two AD domain in the forest.

What's the best practice in configuring the Active Directory NTP service so that all servers & network appliances can synch to single time source only to the NTP Pool Server ?

My understanding is that the NTP server must be on the Physical Machine and the FSMO role PDC Emulator.
