what i do is the following setup for linux-servers and time:
1.) set hardware-clock to GMT,
2.) tell the system the hardwareclock is set to GMT (how depends on distro)
3.) set local timezone to GMT+2                  (again, depends on distro)
4.) check all win-Clients to have the correct timezone set
after that your system-clock should be showing the correct time in linux,
and samba should use the correct kickoff times.
as a sideefect it gives you the possibility to use ntp to sync your clock with
any timeserver out there in the internet.
