the same answers you received previously apply:

use the ntpd daemon, one of more as servers (reference time) and 
the rest as clients. 

Optionally, clients can also only be synchronized from time
to time (and not constantly) to the server with the ntpdate command, 
included in ntp packages.

You can synchronize the server to hosts's clock or to a trusted
signal such as a GPS receiver or a CDMA phone.
