Re: [Samba] Samba Time Synchronisation wikipage




Hai, 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/networking/windows-time-service/how-the-windows-time-service-works

Look in the above link, search for "Time Synchronization in an AD DS Hierarchy". 
There you find the PDC Emulator role.  In the piramide. ;-) 
This one explains even better then the technet link. 

It also explains Alexei's question i believe. 


Greetz, 

Louis
