In addition to Ryan's information, you can run the "official" NTP on
Windows NT, 2000, XP and Vista, although it is not the "built-in" NTP:
This will allow Windows to act as both server and client. I have been
using that version on Windows Vista, but not with completely satisfactory
results, showing high short-term jitter:
Has anyone done tests on the native Vista NTP implementation? WHat is the
performance like? Does it respond to NTPQ commands?
