When Microsoft decides to randomly connect to an NTP server to do a time update is something that only Microsoft knows. I've read their articles but have yet to see an algorithm that can be deciphered to see exactly when a time sync will occur. It could be a week before the next update. Did you logoff and logon, or did you just sit inside your same Windows session waiting for whenever the time service decides to connect? w32tm /resync Describe in "w32tm /?". Never used it so I don't know if it works to force an immediate resynchronization. You might want to use the Update Now button in the Date applet in Control Panel under its Internet Time tab. I use Socketwatch (payware) but there are plenty of free "atomic clock" sync utilities. Also, just because you list multiple NTP servers doesn't mean they get use. I, too, added several domains in the registry (I'd have to go lookup the key again) but only the currently selected one gets used. To see which *one* will get used, use the Date applet in Control Panel, Internet Time tab, and notice which *one* is selected. Add more NTP servers to the list doesn't mean they all get used. It just gives you a list from which you can select. Microsoft's NTP server is quite busy since that is the default one used by the vast majority of Windows users. As such, you'll probably get an error and no sync which means having to wait around for days or a week before a retry (and maybe the NTP server is too busy at that time, too). I prefer a 3rd party NTP client that can poll many NTP servers (since some may not be responsive) and also use the one with the least delay (a local NTP server may not have the least hops or lowest network lag versus an NTP server a lot farther away). For example, my local university's NTP server doesn't respond as fast as an NTP server a state away.
