comment Does a chord imply a change in the key signature?
Kinda funny song title. "Cold Duck" refers to a brand of cheap sparkling wine (faux champagne) made in Canada that was popular in the 1960s and 1970s.

In one style of jazz lead sheet writing, no key signature is used at all even though the melody line and the chord progressions clearly indicate one or more different keys. In this style of lead sheet notation, lots of accidentals are put in front of notes as needed, rather than having the accidentals notated in a key signature.

comment Does a chord imply a change in the key signature?
In general, regardless of your example, no one chord by itself implies a change in key. It requires a progression of chords creating a cadence to create a change in key. In general, jazz involves frequent very brief excursions into chords that are outside the given key or that contain notes outside the given key, but these are so frequent and brief that they do not necessarily constitute a key change. Furthermore most jazz lead sheets are notated with a single key signature even though the piece clearly moves into one or more different keys at certain points.

comment Do capable harmony singers sing in just intonation or tempered tuning?
@RockinCowboy, I passed that very same audition for that very same group myself, in 1978.

comment Do capable harmony singers sing in just intonation or tempered tuning?
What a good singer does with regard to intonation varies with the contexts of different pieces of music that are being sung. A good singer can choose between just intonation and 12-tone equal temperament at will. The singers in an a cappella choir can choose to exist in the isolation of just intonation, and in the same concert they can sing accompanied by a piano and shift gears into 12-tone equal temperament.

@SimonWhite, as a lifetime semi-professional choral singer and vocal soloist with a university degree in singing, I disagree with your premise. All singing can be infinitely microtonal in nature. Good singers can control microtonality well, and poor singers cannot.
