What is a Time Server?

A Time Server is a server computer that reads the actual time from a reference clock and distributes this information to its clients using a computer network. The time server may be a local network time server or an Internet time server. The most important and widely-used protocol for distributing and synchronising time is the Network Time Protocol (NTP), though other less-popular or outdated time protocols continue in use.
