Somewhat of an outside chance, but timezones can be set per-process,
just by setting TZ in the environment. Make sure that procfs(5) is
mounted, and try running
ps -auxwwwe | grep TZ
If there is a process with TZ set in the environment, especially if it
is set to 'America/Los_Angeles' or similar (9 hours offset from UTC is
typical for PDT)[*] that's probably your smoking gun right there. Do
you have West Coast based users/admins who might have restarted some
processes or reloaded firewall rulesets?
[*] Or else on Guam or some other part of the Eastern Pacific?
