We have an Active Directory Parent & Child Domain Hierarchy.

We have root Domain's PDC is in Azure & I can see it is taking time from "VM IC Time Synchronization Provider" so do we need to sync this PDC emulator with external time source or we can rely on Azure ( I mean we don't need to be do anything as that PDC is on Azure)?

    There is no right or wrong answer but I suggest to review the contents - https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/time-sync

    There may be delay upto 30 seconds, during memory preserving maintenance. I think you can go with both the options - internal and external time server.
