-> Try NET TIME, below is the command syntax:
-> The syntax of this command is:
-> NET TIME [\\computername | /DOMAIN[:domainname]] [/SET]
-> NET TIME synchronizes the computer's clock with that of another computer or
-> domain, or displays the time for a computer or domain. When used without
-> options on a Windows NT Server domain, it displays the current
-> date and time at the computer designated as the time server for the domain.
-> \\computername Is the name of the computer you want to check or
-> synchronize with.
-> /DOMAIN[:domainname] Specifies the domain with which to synchronize time.
-> /SET Synchronizes the computer's time with the time
-> on the specified computer or domain.
-> NET HELP command | MORE displays Help one screen at a time.

There is a program called About Time which runs on NT and supports NTP and
SNTP which has both client and server components in the product. It's free
and works well with existing NTP time standards. We use it to sync with
the time standards and our Unix machines.
