Getting Data In

Applying timezone on basis of sourcetype and hostname

Hello,
I have requirement for applying time-zone on incoming data on basis of source type and host location both.
I know that we can put the timezone TZ on basis of the source type as follow:
[source::mysource]
TZ=US/Pacific

and also on basis of hostname as follow:
[host::DC1*]
TZ=US/Pacific

However, is it possible to combine these two parameters and put together as below in props.conf:

[source::mysource]
[host::USDC*]
TZ=US/Pacific
[host::AUSDC*]
TZ=Australia/Sydney

so that data of same source type and different sources can get time-zone correctly.

Please advise.
