It is possible that, from Windows 2003 upwards, it can be configured to 
be NTP compliant, although the documentation I've seen is not clear on 
whether the clock discipline control loop is compliant.  Again, only 
Microsoft know.

The original version was definitely broken SNTP.  The OP should really 
have identified the version.
