[ntp:questions] Windows Time Service not working - time running too fast.

We have a Win2k server controlling an Active Directory domain who's
time seems to drift 10-15 minutes too fast a day.

No matter what NTP server i set it to by:

net time /setsntp:time.windows.com  etc

then stop and start the server:

net stop w32time
net start w32time

It just doesn't seem to synchronise and get the time back on track.

I don't think its the hardware firewall blocking the ports because a
WinXP computer here that hasn't joined the domain is able to sync with
the time servers fine.

Does anybody have any ideas?
