(ana)cron & local time changing ?


What is the supposed behaviour of cron when the local time changes?

To put it more clearly: let's suppose that on the 28th of March 2 AM
we have to skip forward an hour due to daylight savings time. What
should happen to a script that is set up to run at eg. 2:20 AM 
in my crontab file?

(To tell the truth, I tried it... The script didn't run on my
system [with kernel 2.2.1, anacron 2.0.1-2]. So my question 
in another form: Is it a bug that this script did not run, or 
is it a feature? :-) )

Thanks for you time,
