[Samba] use samba timeserver for linux box

I have a small network with a dialup connection to the internet. When 
the server is online to collect mail, etc I use ntpdate to synchronise 
it with a local timeserver.

The windows machines on the network set their time using the timeserver 
in Samba with a "net time ..." bat file. This works well.

I would like to synchronise the linux machines using the samba time 
server but have been unable to work out how to do it? Setting up an ntp 
daemon seems a bit over the top when there is a perfectly good Samba 
timeserver already running.

 How can I access the Samba timeserver to set the time on a linux machine?
