If you have Linux/Unix then run ntpd provided by the OS vendor and/or
install latest version of NTPD downloaded from www.ntp.org.
If Mac or Windows then there are a number of open source and public
domain NTP/SNTP clients available. For example NetTime for Windows is a
simple and free SNTP client <http://nettime.sourceforge.net/>. NetTime
would keep a PC within 100ms from the target time server.
A list comparing the feature of various NTP/SNTP client can be found at
which includes a spreadsheet with a number of software clients.
Of course the right tool depends on your specific synchronization needs.
