It's actually completely trivial to synchronize clocks. For Linux and
other Unix O/S's, use [x]ntpd. For Windows servers and workstations,
starting with W2k, Microsoft has provided fully functional NTP support:

http://www.boulder.nist.gov/timefreq/service/pdf/win2000xp.pdf

There are also free or shareware NTP implementations, I like NetTime
(though it is largely abandoned by its author):

http://nettime.sourceforge.net/

There is no excuse for servers not being synchronized to a reference
clock; there is barely any excuse for clients.
