Hi Matthieu,

Now it works like charm.
I compile the NTP with the option  --enable-wintime --enable-ntp-signd; once i restart the client it change the time accordingly to server time.
Now my client problem with the clock synchronization is solve.

So first you have to use some specials options on ./configure:
--enable-wintime --enable-ntp-signd

Then you have to be sure to had in the ntp.conf configuration the following line ntpsigndsocket /usr/local/samba/var/run/ntp_signd
(unless you use a special dir for your samba4 installation).

Then start your ntp daemon.

In the windows side you have several ways to check it:
* In the event log you shouldn't see any w32time error message
* in cmd /c start w32tm /resync /rediscover, it should say that everything is great !
