You can ignore that message :-)

As far as I know, there is a known bug in DOS (un)zip
timezone handling: If you do not set TZ, then it just
uses local time. But if you do set TZ, the conversion
between timestamps of files and timestamps inside ZIP
files and back has unexpected results. For example you
zip a file in DOS, unzip in Windows or Linux, and the
timestamp of the unzipped file ends up being wrong...
I think there was an update of info-zip for DOS this
year, maybe they fixed this bug at that time?
