    Just expanding on this a little...
    - If you do "net time" or "net time \\servername", you'll request
      time via netbios. Works fine against e.g. a samba server that
      gets its time from somewhere else (NTP?).
    - You can also do "net time /"
      and start the "Windows Time" service; it'll poll from the given
      NTP server periodically.
    (I think the "Windows Time" service will automagically poll
     via netbios if started without setting the name of an NTP
     server, but don't quote me on that.)
