      change the ntp_server with your source. Check http://tf.nist.gov/tf-cgi/servers.cgi for servers
    2. Restart the time service
    3. Resync the time
    4. Verify your sync status

Commands above should be fine if your sources are working correctly and/or your connection is OK (firewall or Microsoft Forefront can be an issue also).
