If your app is real time, carry that time in every net response. In real time app you of course continuously communicate with the server.
If you app is not real time, sync the time in every reasonable period. 1 second, 5 seconds. 1 minute, whatever. You client needs to remember the time and use local clock to increase the time until next sync.
