Apple releases updates to the TZ database in Mac OS X using the usual software update mechanism. There hasn’t been an update yet containing 2013i.

Until Apple releases an update with 2013i, the easiest thing to do is select a different time zone with the same local time.

I have the impression that Apple does not publish tzdata updates to user machines by the usual Software Update mechanism.  You may need to install the latest version of tzdata, on every machine, yourself.
