Can I change something so that when I boot the host, the BIOS screen shows the local time instead of UTC?

I have 2 ESXi hosts, each with the Time Configuration set to use NTP and check the Domain Controller (one of the VM's). When I boot the host machine, the time shown is exactly 4 hours ahead of the current local time (I am in the US-Eastern time zone). This problem propagates to each VM. When I boot the VM and go into the setup screen, the time shown is 4 hours ahead.
