	NTP has nothing at all to do with time zones.  That is a local 
operating-system specific representation issue.  NTP deals 
exclusively with what is called "UTC" time.

	Setting your system time zone is something that is done a little 
differently on most operating systems.  For this, you should see your 
manuals, documentation, online references, etc... for your OS.

	If the timezone calculation performed by your OS is not correct 
(or not correct anymore, as a result of this order), then you need to 
feed that information back to your OS vendor so that they can make 
the appropriate changes.
