No, that’s not bad grammar… It is just a reminder that it is important for all windows systems to have “good time” and all be pulling from an accurate time source. In Active Directory based networks it is critical that all of your systems be no greater than 5 minutes apart from each other. Without this, it can lead to sporadic issues with users being unable to connect to resources on the network.

The best way to configure this for our clients is for the domain controllers to be pulling time from a reliable time source (such as pool.ntp.org) and then for domain servers and workstations to pull from the domain controllers.
