I Don't Do Windows (tm) but, if I understand you are writing a user 
control and display interface to the system clock.  Install the existing 
NTP client as part of your install process, and let it handle ntp 
correctly, which is much more complictaed that just getting the time 
from some server.  Then you can worry about the user interface part.
