Default How to force Windows XP Pro. SP3 to retry another NTP server if itfails?


I noticed sometimes my old, updated Windows XP Pro. SP3's internet time
synchronizations with a time server, fail for whatever reasons. Is there
a way to have it automatically try a different NTP server automatically
if the current one failed?

The reason why I ask is because my Windows/PC's time/clock seems to
drift slowly a lot when I use DVI and watch videos. You can read

.... So far, we're all stomped.

Thank you in advance.
