Is there a command I can issue through ssh to tell a computer to update its
time against a time server?
Provided that your time isn't wildly off, if you have ntp configured,
it should do this automagically. The easiest way to configure it is
in the Date/Time preference pane.
Otherwise, `man ntpupdate` and `apropos ntp`

Also I was getting a error stating that the server could not be found when
specifying time.apple.com or our local time server here on campus. All my
computers are running 10.3.9 with the latest updates.
Well the error indicates you may have somethinmg else using the port,
if it's not ntp already.
The later is probably b/c your network isn't permitting ntp in/out
bound traffic or b/c your DNS is hosed (depending on if it can't be
resolved, or can't be contacted). What does `dig time.apple.com`
iWiring provides systems and networks support for Mac OS X, unix, and
Open Source application technologies at affordable rates.
