To be honest, I have never given this much thought, I normally just set
the DCs up identically and then get DHCP to send both DCs as time
servers to Unix machines.

I have a draft chrony wikipage, but I need to understand more about
windows and time servers (I use Unix more than I use windows) before
adding it.
