    Problem with synching to time server


    When looking through the list of events in Windows Event Viewer, I have, for a long while now, been getting, every day, several warnings that look like this:-

    Event 134, Time service
    NtpClient was unable to set a manual peer to use as a time source because of DNS resolution error on 'time-new.nist.gov'. NtpClient will try again in 15 minutes and double the reattempt interval thereafter. The error was: No such host is known. (0x80072AF9).

    The most recent of these was today at 15:28. When I look at the internet time settings (via control panel), it says the clock was successfully synchronised with time.nst.gov on 22/10/2018 (today) at 16:19 (a few minutes ago). The list of time servers is as follows:-

    time.windows.com
    time.nist.gov
    time.nw.nist.gov
    time-a.nist.gov
    time-b.nist.gov

    My questions is this: Why is the NTP client apparently trying to synchronise using a server that isnít in the list? Where is it getting the server name 'time-new.nist.gov' from? Itís not in the list - only Ďtime.nw.nist.goví.
    If I set the time server to time.windows.com should it cure the problem?
