Would something like this be better? Do you need a UTC after the timestamp.
Note: now + delta is timezone agnostic.

Specify the date and time when the generated RRSIG records become
valid. This can be either an absolute or relative time. An absolute
start time is indicated by a number in YYYYMMDDHHMMSS notation;
20000530144500 denotes 14:45:00 UTC on May 30th, 2000. A relative
start time is indicated by +N, which is N seconds from the current
time. If no start-time is specified, the current time minus 1 hour
(to allow for clock skew) is used.
