I'm trying to get my DC (with the PDC Emulator role) to sync its time to an external NTP server but it simply doesn't stick!? It simply continues to use the local CMOS clock as a source??

I've executed these commands:

I've tested this: w32tm /stripchart /computer:NTPServerNameOrIP /dataonly /samples:x and I get answers back

But the PDC simply doesn't keep the external NTP server as a source and thus doesn't synchronize the time correctly ... what's up with this!?
