Synchronising servers' clocks

I have a database server (Postgresql 7.2) hosted in a machine and a Web server suporting a PHP 4 application hosted in another computer.
I need to synhronise them in order to have the same date and time in both machines. How can I do that automatically every time I turn them on?

Thanks in advance

This is how I sync my desktop with my firewall:
ssh /etc/init.d/ntpd start>/dev/null
sleep 305
/usr/sbin/ntpdate >>/var/time.log 2>&1
/sbin/clock -w -u >>/var/time.log 2>&1
rm /etc/adjtime
/sbin/clock -w -u >>/var/time.log 2>&1

ssh /etc/init.d/ntpd stop>/dev/null
Run that script on the client machine. In this case is the machine running the server.
You have to do a key exchange for this to work.
