I have configured samba4 and ntp following the official HowTO.

Client computers running Windows XP synchronize their time correctly but
only when windows starts or after a restart (same thing).

My ntp.conf is the same found in the HowTo. ntp version is 4.2.6p4 and I
set the following domain policy:

In Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Windows Time
Service\Time Providers\
- Enabled Windows NTP client
- Configuration of NTP clients:
    NtpServer: mysamba4server,0x01

What it is needed to get these clients synchronize their time without

Best regards,
