I haven't seen it mentioned on the list yet, so I'll add (not to say this
has anything to do with Samba really)

Get Tardis95 from www.tucows.com - it's a Win95 program that's both an ntp
client and an ntp/daytime/time server.  Installed xntpd on the Unix side,
and point it at the Win95 box running Tardis - or alternatively run 'date
-s win95host' (or your system's equivalent) in a cron job on the Unix
