No, but the workstations use an RPC to UDP port 445 or 137, not 123.
W32TIME only uses the UDP port 123 when it's configured to be an NTP
client or server, both disabled in my post above.

All that W32TIME would do in the configuration above would be to serve
domain workstations the system time, which is itself then disciplined
by NTP.

It may not be the ideal configuration, but it works.
