If I understand you are asking how to sync time between host and guest.  If you never want to sync guest and host you can probably do that as well (but I don't know why you'd want this).

Install VMware Tools in the guest.

run sudo /usr/bin/vmware-tooolbox-cmd timesync enable (or I suppose you could run timesync disable if you want this).  If the command returns

Enabled (or disabled) you are done.
