The clock is probably wrongly set on the news server.  In general, this
is much less likely than a client having a wrong time.

Many people prefer that the date represent the posting date rather than
the writing date, if they are composing offline, so I'm sure rather more
than Lynx let the server set the date.  What you should really worry about
is the server setting a future date; some people set future dates to try
and get their article to the top of the newsgroup - the more experienced
users of USENET spot this and ignore such articles!
