System configured to read RTC time in the local time zone

When I run timedatectl, I get the following message:

Warning: The system is configured to read the RTC time in the local time zone.
         This mode cannot be fully supported. It will create various problems
         with time zone changes and daylight saving time adjustments. The RTC
         time is never updated, it relies on external facilities to maintain it.
         If at all possible, use RTC in UTC by calling
         'timedatectl set-local-rtc 0'.

What is the significance of this, and should I run timedatectl set-local-rtc 0?
