I'm looking for suggestions for a simple, effective solution to keeping the date & time on my three servers (single domain) set correctly.

This is for XP but the steps should be the same for 2003 server and similar for 2000 server

To change the clock synchronization server
If your computer is a member of a domain, your computer clock is probably synchronized automatically by a network time server. If your computer is not a member of a domain, your computer's clock is automatically and regularly synchronized by an Internet time server. This procedure provides information on switching to a different Internet time server.

Open Date and Time in Control Panel.
Click the Internet Time tab.
The Internet Time tab is not available if your computer is a member of a domain.

Select the Automatically synchronize with an Internet time server check box.
In the Server list, click the arrow, and then click the time server you want to use.
Notes

To open Date and Time, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Date and Time.
Internet time synchronization updates your clock on a regular basis, but only when you are connected to the Internet. It takes just a moment and should not interfere with your work.
You can type the name of a time server if you want to use one that is not listed. Only time servers that use the Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) will work. Inserting an Internet address that uses the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) will not work. For more information, refer to RFC 1305. You can obtain RFCs from the RFC Editor Web site.
The time server time.windows.com is operated by Microsoft. The time server time.nist.gov is operated by the U.S. government. Other time servers provided by your computer's manufacturer may also be listed.

1st, list the OS of the server....

2ndly, you can install 3rd party Time synch software to automatically update the server time on one and run timeserv.exe on all your systems and point them to that server.

Not sure what OS your servers are, but in Windows 2000 server, go into dhcp, server options, and set up an ntp server. if you search the web for ntp server, you'll find some public ones that you can use.
