Any such list would be incomplete; who knows what TZ string is being
used in some random server in Mongolia?

I suppose that you could write a program that would go through the TZ
database and output all the POSIX-style TZ strings equivalent to the
current rules in use.  It'd be a job, though.

If you want just the Olson-style TZ strings, you can get a complete
list of canonical names by inspecting the 3rd column of zone.tab.
