Microsoft does state it supports NTP, but only with Windows 2003.
Having said that I wouldn't have a clue as to how fully NTP has been
ported to the MS code.

Has anyone heard of NTP servers being spoofed to try and bring a
network down?  Is it possible, if so how easy is it to spoof a time
server?  Wouldn't you need to have the same IP address, or I'm probably
showing my ignorance of hacking techniques..

I'd do it but I doubt it would co-exist with the MS services that
depend on Windows Time, unless you could get Windows Time to somehow
rely on it...
