TIMESTAMP columns are limited to the valid UNIX timestamps (and subject
to the year 2038 problem) but adjust to the time_zone variable (global
or session) automatically.
DATETIME can store much more but you will need to store/retrieve
consistent values with functions like CONVERT_TZ.

By the way.. the SQL 99 is a copy of a book and not necessarily
implemented in MariaDB.
Please follow the documentation listed at
