I have checked up which one of my 2 DCs (Debian Bookworm, Samba 4.17.9) 
that has got the FSMO roles. The one with the FSMO roles does not supply 
time to the Windows client I checked. Doesn't it depend on which of the 
DCs that is listed first in the DNS list? Shouldn't any DC be able to 
supply time services, in case other ones are off line?

Well, this is nitpicking, but every bit of knowledge is precious.

Thanks for your comments.

Best regards,
