Running NTPD on Windows *as* *a* *server* would be most people's LAST 
choice unless there is no other!  Windows "Vista" may have changed this 
but, the last time I looked, Windows' clock "ticks" every 17 
milliseconds.  Using this as a server is like "measure with micrometer, 
mark with chalk, cut with axe"!
