To the best of my knowledge, NTP serves up GMT time values. Unix itself
counts time internally in GMT, no matter where in the world you are. When
an appplication wishes to present a time value to the user, it uses
localtime(3) to convert it to local time according to the system's timezone
information, and some other library function whose name I have forgotten to
format it into a string.
If your machine did not change to summer time correctly, it is likely that
the timezone is set to "GMT" rather than "Europe/Dublin" or whatever.
