NTP GPO being applied to certain DC's and not others.

Hi,

I've set up a group policy which goes into Computer configuration>Admin templates>System>Windows Time Service>Time providers>Enabled both Configure Windows NTP Client, Enable Windows NTP Client and Enable Global configuration settings.

Under Configure Windows NTP Client I have selected Enabled and for NtpServer I have put in 2 DC's which I want the rest of the DC's to sync NTP with.

The hosts example: Core1 and Core2. These are both getting their NTP from:
time-a.nist.gov
time-b.nist.gov
time-nist.gov

I want the rest of the DC's in our environment to get their NTP from Core1 and Core2.

Core1 is running WS 2016
Core2 is a cisco switch
The rest of the DC's are running WS 2008 R2

So the problem is some of these dc's are getting the proper NTP servers after a gpupdate /force. I'm getting a few which are not applying the GPO. I've checked the group policy results on these machines and it's neither showing up as Applied or Denied.

 Anyone have any suggestions?
