I have one of my domain controllers set to get time from tock.usno.navy.mil
and time.microsoft.com  but the server is always ~ 6 minutes fast.  The rest
of my network has the same time as this domian controller (which is what I
want), but I can not figure out why it is not getting the correct time.

Any ideas as to what I have set incorrect?
