Windows 2000 time synch does indeed use a hierarchy and
the PDC in the root domain should synch with an external
time source (or an authoritative internal time source
which itself synchs with an external clock).
The simplest approach is to allow w2k to synch using the
hierarchy and to define an external time source on the
root domain PDC. You need only make changes on 1 machine.
I suggest you read up on time synch here:
The hierarchy is explained along with best practices.
