Hi,

There are special considerations on how AD & Windows App Systems will
treat leap second ?

AD is not going to care, nor any app that relies on Windows time, or Windows based Kerberos.

If you have apps where timestamping accuracy is a critical concern, then you have a few different options, depending on what your logging/auditing requirements are e.g. https://developers.redhat.com/blog/2015/06/01/five-different-ways-handle-leap-seconds-ntp/ Leap Smear is available from Google time servers.

I won’t worry much, bear in mind that Kerberos supports up to  300 seconds +/- time skew and Time Services is constantly polling/adjusting.
