pve-zsync error: destination has snapshots and daylight saving

I use pve-zsync as backup solution between servers, sometimes with a periodicity of less than an hour. From time to time, this error arises:

cannot receive new filesystem stream: destination has snapshots (eg. rpool/data/vm-1106-disk-0@rep_mv06-servidor16_2023-10-25_17:00:01)
must destroy them to overwrite it

Only solution I've found is deleting all snapshots in destination server, so losing all backups.

Seems that is related to duplicated snapshots and it has happened again since this Sunday at 3:00 AM, so it seems related to daylight saving, producing new snapshots with exact same name. Could this be reported as bug?
