How to configure an authoritative time server in Windows XP

"Configuring Windows Time service to use an internal hardware clock
To configure the Windows Time service to use an internal hardware clock,
you can change the announce flag on the authoritative time server.

reliable time source and to use the built-in complementary metal oxide
