time server synchronization

My apologies if this question has been answered here or is an FAQ,
however I was unable to find it in my searches.

I'm in the process of setting up a time server for our site, but I want
them to be UNIX boxes instead of NT boxes.  With that in mind, I
installed Samba 2.0.3 on my HP-UX 10.20 box.  Samba is on this machine
strictly so that it can be accessed by Windows machines as a time
server.  For the longest time, I was unable connect to it via net time
\\server on any of my Windows machines, always getting the following
error message.

Error 86: The specified network password is not correct. Type the
password, or contact your network administrator for more information.

What really burned me was that I was (am) able to map drives from any
client.  Eventually I tried the net time command while I had a drive
mapped and lo and behold, it worked!  My question is, am I missing
something in my smb.conf file?  As I'm just playing around right now,
I've just got the default of:

workgroup = <WORKGROUP NAME>
wins server = <WINS server IP address>
name resolve order = hosts wins

	guest ok = no
	read only = no

I know I probably don't havet things configured correctly, so I'd
greatly appreciate any advice.
