[ntp:questions] w32tm DC error

I am a newbie in NTP, yet have to use NTP on Windows XP. But when I try
to run "w32tm /monitor /domain:time.windows.com" there is always
the error message:
GetDcList failed with error code:  0x80070057.
Exiting with error 0x80070057

If I start monitoring "w32tm /monitor /domain:" the
error is 0x800717E6, however. What does the error code mean? Is there
any description for that?

I have set the registry entries exactly like described in
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314054/ (external time source).

But why is my local clock NOT synchronizing with the (S)NTP server?

Thank you for your help!

Regards, Franz
