Some versions of the Windows Time Service are broken - e.g. they get a 
time update once a week.  I strongly recommend using NTP from the 
Meinberg install set and updating to the latest development version, 
especially on your DCs.

[Caveats: I haven't used the Windows Time Service for many years, and I 
believe it is a little better now, and I don't run a domain.]
