 domain policies do not allow the NTP service to set the time.

That needs to be fixed.  Kill the service that sets the time.  NTP can
not coexist with another program that sets the local clock.

A simple option is to find and old PC some place, maybe a dumpster and
install BSD UNIX on it and run the NTP server on that.  And old 486 or
Pentium I is more than fast enough.  In fact you don't  need a PC.
Some older Linksys routers with ARM processors will work.
