This does not need fixing. When/if the date/time of the change between
standard and daylight times changes, your timezone file (New York | Los
Angeles | whatever) gets replaced/updated and it automagically happens
at the proper time.
That file as you both have listed tells the system when to switch times.
There are many of those files on your system, one for each official time
zone area around the world.
