Go back around the other way, setup NTP and use the unix machine to provide time
for the network through
samba, and to sync other windows boxes from.

you can find ntp sync time servers at the following:
http://www.eecis.udel.edu/~mills/ntp/clock1a.html  #Public NTP Primary (stratum
1) Time Servers
http://www.eecis.udel.edu/~mills/ntp/clock2a.html  #Public NTP Secondary
(stratum 2) Time Servers

Set-up samba to be a time server, then point your windows clients to it, you'll
find it 100times more
reliable than any windows time server application...
