Regarding the info below, I am not sure how Anacron comes into play - whether 
it will prevent the lapse or not.

> SUMMARY: Jobs scheduled to run between 02:00 and 02:59 AM Sunday March
> 11th 2007 will be skipped if the server is set to a Time Zone that
> switches to DST on March 11th this year like in the US for example.
> For others where DST is still on April 1st consider this advanced
> notice.
>
> Unless action is taken by the server owner, jobs scheduled to run
> between 02:00 and 02:59 AM Sunday March 11th 2007 will simply not run.
>
> This is part of cron's "normal" behavior when DST springs forward an
> hour each spring and has nothing to do with DST being moved this year
> to March 11th
