System Time is 1 hour offset after syncing via Windows Time Servic

One of the Windows 2003 Member Servers within our Domain is keeping its local
System Time incorrectly. We have repeatedly set the System Time to sync via
net time to one of the Time Servers (Domain Controllers). When we perform
this function manually from command line using Net Time, the time syncs to
the time server and gives us back a "successful" message. Unfortunantly, we
see that the local System Clock stays 1 hour behind even after this Windows
Time success sync message.
What could be causing the Windows Server 2003 to keep its local System Time
1 hour off, and not update its time based on time received from the Domain
Controller?

Did you apply all the DST patches to your servers when they came out? It
doesn't sound like it. See http://support.microsoft.com/gp/cp_DST for more
help.

Hi,

The Time Zone of this server is set to a different TZ than the DC.

As I asked Kev...did you install the DST patches when they were released?
