W32tm is an SNTP service intended to synchronize time on workstations in a domain to a domain controller at intervals.NTP service is intended to maintain accurate time on clients and servers across the internet, where the accuracy willdepend on your budget and effort, from <100ms with poolservers to <1us with referenc
e clock hardware and kernel PPS support.W32tm service parameters documented at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc773263%28v=ws.10%29.aspx, may be compared to options from NTP docs @ doc.ntp.org:e.g. Configuration Commands and OptionsMiscellaneous Commands tinker - modify sacred system parameters (dangerous) http://doc.ntp.org/4.2.6p5/miscopt.html#tinker for current stable release 4.2.6p5tinker...... panic panic Specifies the panic threshold in seconds with default 1000 s. If set to zero, the panic sanity check is disabled and a clock offset of any value will be accepted.... step step Specifies the step threshold in seconds. The default without this command is 0.128 s. If set to zero, step adjustments will never occur. Note: The kernel time discipline is disabled if the step threshold is set to zero or greater than 0.5 s.... stepout stepout Specifies the stepout threshold in seconds. The default without this command is 900 s. If set to zero, popcorn spikes will not be suppre
ssed.So tinker step is similar to W32tm MaxAllowedPhaseOffset except for different service levels:The default value for domain members is 300. The default value for stand-alone clients and servers is 1. and the W32tm slew requirement: |CurrentTimeOffset| / (PhaseCorrectRate*UpdateInterval) < SystemClockRate / 2 -- -- Take care.

In /etc/ntpd.conf, or whatever your OS calls that file.

Note that ntpd was not really designed for  use without a reference 
clock.  If you are careful, you can do so, but it is easy to create 
configurations that behave badly.
