Windows Time Service Overview

Windows Time Service is installed by default on all computers running Windows 2000, XP, and 2003 family. With time synchronization, computers set their clocks automatically depending on their network environment.

If the computer is in a Workgroup network, the default setting for the time synchronization frequency is set to "once per week," and this default setting uses the time.windows.com site as the trusted time synchronization source. For Windows XP, you can re-configure the Internet Time by going to Date and Time Properties. Under Internet Time, you can change the Time Server. You can enable and disable the automatically synchronize with an Internet time server.

With a domain network, Windows Time Service starts automatically on computers. When a domain computer starts, the Net Logon service synchronizes time with the domain controller as time server.
