comment Domain member as ntp server for other (non-domain) network
Thank you for great suggestions! Unfortunately, neither solution is possible; B does not have communication with the PDC emulator, or any DC for that matter. The two networks are completely separate, except for A and a few workstations connected to both. Otherwise, the static network on the right is completely isolated from the world (it is a thin client network). Any topology changes are unfortunately out of the question at this point :(

comment How should I search for IP conflicts in static networks?
I will certainly keep that in mind while planning future projects. Thanks :-)

There is dinosaur software running on these servers, which is configured by static ip's. Anyways, it is not my decision.

arp -a in the command prompt was what I was looking for :-)

I have also read that the number of bad sectors on the hard drive increases over time. Is there any threshold when it would be a good idea to get a new hard drive? (I assume it is easy to count the number of such bad sectors)

They are mostly Windows 2003 R2 servers. I am neither confident that they will fail at different times, or that our surveillance of the state here is sufficient. The computers support a fairly large RAID array, but I currently only use two disks.
