Windows Server 2008 R2 Domain Controller Time is off

Hi,
My Windows Server 2008 R2 Domain Controller Time is always ahead by 5 minutes and though I have tried several times to manually adjust it back, it always goes back ahead by 5 minutes. All domain members since with it and therefore they all have the wrong time.

I had the same issue.
I changed the time server from windows.ntp to pool.ntp.org
Powershell as admin, run the following commands

w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:pool.ntp.org /syncfromflags:MANUAL
Stop-Service w32time
Start-Service w32time

Its a pool of NTP servers and you can manually specify different servers
w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:”0.pool.ntp.org 1.pool.ntp.org” /syncfromflags:MANUAL
Just keep adding them with a space in between them.

I have run the commands. How do I check which time server is currently actively in use?
Is there a difference between pool.ntp.org and 0.pool.ntp.org and 1.pool.ntp.org? In other words doesn't specifying pool.ntp.org cover the other 2?

Yes it covers the POOL of time servers.
To check status
 w32tm /query /status /verbose
