I suspect both policy approaches end up overwriting any locally
configured registry settings each time the policy is applied, so to
figure out the active configuration all you (or w32time) need do is
look at the registry.  When changing w32time parameters, you can force
policy reapplication to see if your parameters are overwritten:
gpupdate /force
