None have decent ones.  W2k3 SP2 has a fair one, and some people say 
this extends back to the unservice-packed version.  Presumably later 
versions have, at least, the same software.

I'm not aware of any built-in versions interpolating clock ticks and I'm 
not aware of any of them supporting any of the management interfaces, 
but I've not had sufficient hands on access to say these with absolute 

I believe that all of them require explicit configuration before they 
will make proper client requests.
