They claim that they are not using NTP, but I was not on site during installation

Check the man pages on ntpd and ntpdate. In a nutshell, here are the commands I call from a cronjob to set the time. Note that ntpd has to be stopped before running netdate.
/usr/sbin/ntpdate -B pool.ntp.org
At bootup, "-b" should be used instead of "-B." You don't want to change the slew based on a free-running hardware clock.

I now that the earlier posts are years ago, never the less I am experiancing a "time drift" too.
I and using ntp and the tock.... CSIR time server too on a HP ServerTower ProLiant ML350 G6, QC Xeon E5620(2.40GHz)
12MB, 8 x SFF, P410i/256MB, 6GB(3x2GB), 460W PSU, DVD-ROM using VMware ESX, 4.1.0, 320092 and am experiancing a once of 10min time drift that only appears when the server has to sync the time with the CSIR time server after a reboot of the VMware host. Any suggestions?
