Well, yes I do.
I was looking into this earlier today.
You don't say enough about your workgroup/domain, but I
have this problem too. In my case, I am running v3.0.6
as a PDC. All of my MS clients are NT4-SP6 or better
(well newer anyway). Most are WinXP.
What I find in the event log of WinXP clients is a message
to the effect that the client has joined a NT4 domain
(in this case, my Samba PDC) and the MS NT4 generation
domain server does not support NTP.
A bit of searching has found this:
This article contains two links at the bottom
which look promising too.
I'm about to start playing with it, but I would be
good to hear a Samba solution. I don't like
hacking the registry.
