> How does Microsoft Windows know to grab the time off the Linux server?
As I said:
  "clients can still set their time with the "net time" command."
The synax is "net time \\sambaServer /set /yes
This can be run interactively from a DOS prompt, in an autoexec.bat, or in
a netlogon startup script

> Is ntpd needed on the Linux server to execute net time?
No, Samba is. xntpd is needed for an accurate software clock.
