None, I am configuring it via the group policy above.

It was originally set to time.windows.com,0x09 and a few discussions on the topic also suggested the same flag so I figured it was a good idea. I suppose it could be my problem (along with a trillion other things), I don't know a heck of a lot about NTP.

comment Group Policy for Time Sync = ARP Flood?
Yeah, I wouldn't think so either, but I left a part out of the original question (which I will edit in in a second). I changed the group policy slightly to make the workstations pull directly from pool.ntp.org instead of the server... and the one workstation that was not flooded enough to actually receive a new copy of the group policy stopped flooding the network. Now I just need to figure out how to get the rest of them to stop flooding, because some are too busy flooding to get a new copy. Still don't know why server time = flood though.

comment Active Directory user names: why does the canonical name vary? Can I do something to make them uniform?
Alright, so my options are rebuild the domain at a 2003 level (not going to happen) or upgrade the 2003 box to 2008 R2 (also probably not going to happen, my boss would sooner spend the money on a new machine than play with an old one). I'll make extra sure our backups are good though, just in case something DOES die...

If the domain & forest's functional level is at Server 2008 R2, can the old Server 2003 box act as a secondary DC or do we need to upgrade that machine's OS?
