[Samba] Rsync - what is max --modify-window number?

I am trying to use rsync to synchronize files to a Windows computer over Samba
but the recent daylight savings time change has changed the files on one of the computers.

So rsync -run threatens to update _all_ files instead of just the few recently changed ones
because they are different by 1 hour.

I made an alias to include "--modify-window=3666" but it doesn't seem to be working
because it still wants to update all the files.

The alias is:
rsync.hour='rsync -vpogt1D --modify-window=3666'

What's the maximum value of --modify-window?
Can it be changed?
