>From the MS knowledge-base:
With WinNT the kernel calls the time daemon to run approximately every
hour. If the system time and the time maintained by the RTC drift
apart by more than one minute, then the system time is re-synchronised
to the RTC time.


Does this have to be disabled before starting ntpd?
Is it simply a case of disabling W32Time in the Services menu?

I think a similar situation also exists in Solaris.
