Domain Time both obtains and provides time using Universal Coordinated Time (UTC). It is unaffected by time zone settings on the local machine
or by changes in Daylight Saving Time. No changes or updates to Domain Time are required for changes in time zones or Daylight Saving Time.
Operating systems such as Windows, UNIX, Linux, and others use UTC time for their internal system clock. The OS then calculates what time to
display to the user or applications by applying local time zone settings to the UTC time. The time zone settings used are set on the individual
machine (such as in Window's Date and Time Control Panel applet).
Changes in Daylight Saving Time are specific to particular time zones and local laws. These laws change periodically, so you will need to
contact the operating system vendor to obtain time zone updates for your locality.
See Microsoft KB914387 for more information on how Windows handles
Daylight Saving Time. You may want to use the TZEDIT utility referenced in the KB to examine your own machine's start and end dates if it appears
your machine suddenly is off by exactly one hour near the beginning or end of Daylight Saving Time.
