I am currently running an entirely homogeneous NT4 network and have this
exact problem.  In user manager for domains I have given everybody the
permission to change system time but on the workstation end it makes no
difference, nobody can change the system time unless they have admin.
privileges.  There may be a patch out there but I don't know of one.

Give everyone the permission to change time (in user domain utility).
Or better install a time sync daemon that uses ntp or other network time
