Yes; you need to run Samba as the PDC, then give the clients a logon
script (e.g., \\server\netlogon\logon.bat, stored on the Samba server)
that includes the command
	net time \\<SERVER> /set /yes

In your smb.conf:

		time server = yes
		logon script = logon.bat
	        path = /usr/local/samba/lib/netlogon
		writable = no
		browsable = no

The path can be wherever you want; I'm using /usr/local/samba/netlogon
as an example.  I think the above will do it for you - I didn't really
check all of that! ;)
