Question Date synchronization

Hi all
Is there an easy way to synchronize the time of a Linux server with another server (Linux or Windows). I need to do this on a daily basis so that my clock does is insync.
Is synchronizing with an eternal server hazardous to the security of the box?

Thanks in advance

Q: Have you tried NTP?
Thank you! I did look it up and was able to synchronize my time for now. But is there an NTP cron that I need to setup in order to have it synchronize on a regular basis... like a week or 10 days?
What is the standard practice that admins follow?
