Hello mahmoudmga,

The DC with the PDCEmulator is the time source of the domain, no other, check
with "netdom query fsmo" in a command prompt. To configure it:

w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:PEERS /syncfromflags:manual /reliable:yes /update

With "PEERS" you can set the time source, either DNS name (time.windows.com)
or an ip address from a reliable time source.

Here you can find some of them:
http://www.pool.ntp.org/

To configure a client computer for automatic domain time synchronization
or if you changed the PDCEmulator to another DC run on the old PDCEmulator:

w32tm /config /syncfromflags:domhier /update

After that run:
net stop w32time
net start w32time

Best regards
