How EST and EDT conversion works when the user profile configured with America/New_York Time Zone

The system I am developing is writing some data into an external SQL Database configured to keep the date time value in GMT. Meanwhile users in Pega have the time zone as America/New_York in their profile. If I save (on August 24th 2017) a date time value as August 01st 2017 EDT 6 AM and it goes to database as 2017-08-01 10:00:00. When the user retrieve the value it shows as 2017-08-01 06:00:00 in the user interface.

Question here is, if the user try to retrieve the same value somewhere in December 2017 (after the time zone change as GMT-5), will Pega show as 2017-08-01 06:00:00 or 2017-08-01 05:00:00?
