%15 would be sufficient if you only need to worry about currently

I think that, like solar time, that can be ignored. I am not absolutely
sure, but I think that I have lived in a country with no official time.
I am certain that nobody actually used an official time if it had one,
because there were no railways, and telephone calls had to be booked
days ahead of time and were seriously unreliable. Even from the few
places that HAD telephones!
Assuming time zones that are a multiple of 15 minutes covers as many
cases as are worth attempting to cover.
