Description of A/R ':'
In Japan, we have set the variable \TimeZoneComp to -9 and it has worked well so far. But recently the time is one hour fast. I think it is caused by the daylight saving time that is not used in Japan.'
Are there any system parameters which control DST?'

Set the variable \BeginDST to 367.'
This variable and \TimeZoneComp are both set appropriately if you have a properly functioning time server on your net.  Setting it manually should only be necessary on standalone machines, or in old sysouts.'
