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

Any info to deal about ?

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

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. Leap Smear is available from Google time servers.
