This shouldn't be related to Domain Contoller or not. There's currently a
problem which lets ntpd trap on some machines, but we don't no yet, why.

can you run some program on such a machine which modifies the multimedia
timer? E.g. Quicktime does so, if it is just started. Does the clock sync
settle if you keep such a program running continuously?
