I do not believe so.  All Windows machines that support
Kerberos also support time synchronization via NTP and
all workstations in a domain synchronize the machine time
to the domain controllers during machine startup.  Therefore,
there would be little need for them to do so.

Even if they did, that information is not exported by
the Lsa API.
