[Samba] time server - slightly OT

Many of the XP systems shipping today come pre-configured to keep their
clocks in sync by communicating with one of Microsoft's SNTP servers,
and will apparently automatically use a local AD server if available,
The "net time" command can be used to change the systems to use a local
NTP server as well.
I'm wondering this:
If the firewall redirects ntp traffic from the Windows boxen (that are
attempting to get to one of MS's SNTP servers) to a local NTP server
will the WIndows systems properly time sync? Or will it not work
correctly because, without a specific setsntp:x.x.x.x, it will be
looking for exclusively for an SNTP server?
