Not so. Even Windows time service uses UTC so the local PC must have the
time zone set correctly for the hour to be correct. If this was not the case
PC in remote offices that sync with our Ohio based domain controller would
only get eastern time. I don't think our California based employees would
take to kindly to that.

Actually, if you're using a network time server on your home LAN,
and sync'ing your workstations to it, you need only make sure that the time
server is running right. The computers will then take care of themselves.
Keep the peace(es).
