The last time the time zone changed was for the SY Olympics and a new
modified zone file was supplied (at least from RH).
With FC the ntpd daemon handles the time adjustment at boot and if there
is a /etc/ntp/step-tickers file with a ntpd server in it then a sync
gets done to that server as part of starting the ntpd daemon.
At the moment, according to the zone files, DST ends on Apr 2 in all
states that have DST, which strikes me as being a week later than normal.

more pertinent is that my ntpd is not really keeping my clock updated
ntp is network time protocol. It keeps UTC in sync not daylight savings
which is offset from UTC.
ntpd will only reset the clock by a few microseconds. you start this
with ntpdate <server> which will force the update then ntpd will keep
this on track. You might want this in oyur boot sequence like ubuntu
