Is it possible to schedule an email send that is based on the time zone of the audience?

To clarify, I'd like to be able to have the emails send to all recipients at the same time for whichever time zone they're in. For example, at 9am the email is sent to leads in Pacific Standard Time, then an hour later at 9am to leads in Mountain Time, then an hour later to leads in Central time, etc. If the lead's time zone was unknown, then the send time would default to your local time zone.

I was able to do this with a different marketing automation platform in the past, and assumed Marketo would be capable of doing this. But so far, I have either been unable to figure out how to accomplish this or Marketo is just unable to do this. It seems that when I schedule a smart campaign, you pick a time and time zone and Marketo sends to all recipients at the same time.

If this is incorrect, I'd appreciate any feedback or suggestions.
