Hi Adam,

try this:

"How to configure an authoritative time server in Windows XP:
Configuring the Windows Time service to use an external time source"

or http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314054/EN-US

I had the same problem some months ago. Trying to set the client´s time in
the user´s logon scripts always brought me an "access denied" error for
the already given reasons. 

If I remember right, it was this article that finally helped me out. This
way the system time is set  but the users are prevented from changing the
time themselves.
