Importance of clock synchronization?

For reasons I don't fully understand, the system clock on our VMWare
ESX server, which will soon host a virtual machine in which we'll run
our new Subversion server, is not synced with the rest of the world -
it's about 9 minutes behind. As a result, any virtual machine running
on this host is also behind.

All our other servers, and desktops, are synced with a central server,
which syncs with an external NTP server.

I've asked our server admin to get the ESX server straightened out,
but if that doesn't happen before we go live with the new Subversion
server, what's our risk level? Is this time difference going to cause
trouble to the point that we can't trust the repository 100%?
