I do not know -- but this is one of the questions I would
expect to be answered when it is decided to which degree
of precision UT is made available with UTC disseminations.

With the current proposal for revision of ITU-R TF.460,
UTC time signals are no longer intended to provide access
to UT, so for the proposal, the question is moot.
