        and others,

They sugegsted to use GPS system or radio-clocks to set the time via
USB/serial on my Sparc hosts
because in our company it is not allowed to get time from the internet for
security reasons.
At last I found a Windows NTP server and wrote its ip address in
/etc/inet/ntp.conf on solaris boxes:

     server prefer

and restarting xntpd solved my problem, now the solaris boxes synchronize to
the Window server running ntp services on it.

Brgds, Eva
