Best way to sync test machine clocks
We're in the process of setting up a perforamnce test environment and want all the PC clocks on the network to be running at the same time.
Does anyone have any recommendations on tools to do this? Preferably free?
We've tried using the W32 time service, getting the time from the Active Directory server on the network. To do this we just run the following command on every machine:
w32tm /config /syncfromflags:domhier /update
net stop w32time
net start w32time
This seemed to work at first - machines sync on restart, but some of the clients are already out by 20 seconds after 24 hours.
Whilst we'll search the web for alternatives, any advice would be appreciated.

I've had good success with http://www.kaska.demon.co.uk/tardis.htm though I haven't touched Windows machines for a while now.
ntpd on linux works fine.
