Keep in mind you can set NTP synchronization options (server, frequency,
etc) through Group Policy under Computer Configuration > Administrative
Templates > System > Windows Time Service.

There is also a good reference on these options located here:

I think your best bet there would be a startup script, because it will
run in localSystem context. However, that runs non-deterministically
(i.e. only when a workstation reboots) so if you're creating a script to
set a particular time, that probably won't work (for obvious reasons).
If you're just using w32time or a similar utility to force a sync with a
time source, then its probably ok.
