Afaik the windows time service does use NTP, but it doesn't have all the "fancy stuff" a normal NTP client has, but simply sets the time directly from the value it gets from the NTP server... but that could be *u*x propaganda, haven't looked into it myself.


I only know I tried to set it to use my NTPv4 server which supports NTP 1 to 4 and SNTP 1 to 4 (and validates as a valid time server at ntp.org) and it timed out. On the other hand when I made it use a TIME protocol server (a text-based protocol that sends current time very approximately) it worked fine.

I never dwelled into details on what it actually uses in the end, I just killed it and used Automachron instead.

Now I know that when within a windows domain, the time service does listen to NTP broadcasts periodically made by the domain controller (but that doesn't apply for home users).

for me, using nlite to the i386 before installation dramatically reduce the OS time to boot and memory consumtion.
