I didn't have Policy issues on my Windows workstations, perhaps because they were domain
members before, but I did have the issues described in this link:
"Some w32time versions are unable to query time from NTP servers ... NTP servers may not
respond to the type of queries sent by w32time ..."
The link describes the issue, and the solution I use on my AD's Windows workstations (also
described in the link) is, Windows command line:
w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:mail,0x8 /syncfromflags:MANUAL
w32tm /config /update
