Active Directory uses Kerberos for authentication between server and client
which requires the clocks of the two systems to be rather close. Now if you
are in a AD the client normally uses the clock of the server, but if that
fluctuates the client clock will thus fluctuate as well (we had this at my
old work where the server's clock drifted heavily as well). Thus the server
should normally get its time from a NTP as well...
