Red Hat don’t provide updates for tzdata or anything unless you’ve signed up for Extended Update Support.   Without that that, RHEL4 hasn’t received any updates since mid-February 2013; including security updates.

However, it should be easy to drop the 2016c tar ball into the RHEL4 source rpm and just rebuild it which will get you out of a hole until you can update the machine to something that’s receiving updates.
