every server, router, switch, and workstation that supports it

PCs are the hardest part. you can net put "time \\source /yes" in the
login script to smack them into synch but they'll drift if you don't have
a real listener. win2k also has listeners but a little rough to config.
there are third party widgets too.

mcast/bcast where possible too, and dhcp config as well

ntp is one of the easier services to globally config
