Run the following from an elevated command prompt
w32tm /config /syncfromflags:domhier /update
Net stop w32time && net start w32time

do I need server name or ip in the command?

The commands worked except for the fact that one server is syncing time with the other domain controller, not the FSMO domain controller.  Does that matter?  The other domain controller is getting it's time from the FSMO.

Nope. The member servers will sync with the PDC emulator.

Ran commands, it is still using other domain controller for time sync which is fine since the other DC is syncing with FSMO.
