w32time is good enough for such crude use of NTP.

However neither of them are likely to be appropriate for whatever your
underlying problem is; you need to fix that problem before you start
trying to synchronise the time.
As someone else said, is this a virtual machine? If so you may be fighitng:
1) virtualisation of the timing hardware;
2) automatic synchronisation of the time to the host machine time.
Usually the correct method for a VM is to get good synchronisation on
the host and then use the VM environment's time keeping support to lock
the guest to the host.
