I humbly admit that my google-fu must be not up to the task, as my prior attempts at finding out where I can find NTP servers did not yield any useable results. But with this article you referenced I was able to find articles on MS Docs (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/networking/windows-time-service/how-the-windows-time-service-works) and MS TechNet (https://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/50924.active-directory-time-synchronization.aspx) that appear to confirm I can simply use the DCs as the NTP servers.

From what I understand, they are not necessarily the same hosts as the actual DCs, but I can't seem to find any specific info on how I can discover the NTP servers to use.
