	I don't think it does.  I think it's pretty much orthogonal to that role.

	No.  You can use w32tm to sync against ntpd, but not the other 
way around.  This is because w32tm is an SNTP client (SNTP = Simple 
Network Time Protocol), while ntpd is a full-fledged NTP server.

	I'd recommend you read the community-supported documentation at 
<https://ntp.isc.org/bin/view/Support/>.  If you have any further 
questions, please let us know.  If you have any suggestions on how to 
improve the documentation, feel free to register for a TWiki account 
and make the changes yourself, or let us know what changes you think 
need to be made.
