That's exactly what the batch file does. 

AFAIK Heiko (who is currently on holiday) has added those batch files just
to be able to simplify running those commands from a start menu entry (as
already mentioned by David). 

Anyway, it the user account does not have sufficient rights then typing "net
start ntp" would not work, either.
