By default you will get the system locale setting that is configured
in /etc/default/locale and configured by the 'locales' package.

  # dpkg-reconfigure locales

Since this is configurable there is always the possibility of it being
uniquely different upon any machine that has changed it.  If you have
READ_ENV="yes" (the default) set in /etc/default/cron then
/etc/init.d/cron will read /etc/default/locale and get any LANG that
is set there.
