This is not true. Windows time service uses UDP/123, just like every
other NTP or SNTP implmentation. All of Microsoft's documentation that
I have read (and I think I have read everything concerning w32time)
agrees on that point.

If you disable both client and server aspects of w32time, it does
nothting whatsoever, I would think.
