comment Windows Server unable to synchronize NTP time reliably
We were never able to get it to work reliably. I think you are right: reliable time sync in Windows Server is impossible without a domain controller. Which is totally lame.

yeah, we didn't want or need a domain controller, just a bunch of peer servers.

comment Should network hardware be set to “autonegotiate” speeds or fixed speeds?
just so that the final answer is here, somewhere, it was bad Broadcom drivers. We could not find any set that worked. Switching to Intel NICs fixed it 100%. blog.serverfault.com/2011/03/04/broadcom-die-mutha

comment Should network hardware be set to “autonegotiate” speeds or fixed speeds?
Just to make sure the final answer is here, somewhere: it was a driver problem with Broadcom. We could not resolve it with any known driver set. The only "fix" was to switch to Intel NICs.
