[phenixbb] phosphate stereochemistry

I have noticed that Phenix mangles O-P bond lengths and angles in the phosphate groups of my DNA chain (example in pict attached). This only happens to 3 out of 28 phosphates. The refined protein-DNA structure does not present any other unusual stereochemistry issues and refinement runs normally. Could anybody advice on what is going on and how to fix this, please?

I am using Phenix-1.7.3-928. Refinement is with default target weights, hydrogens on and does not include simulated annealing. I could make the stereochemistry targets more stringent, but the default values seem strict enough (bond and angle rmsd is 0.005 and 1.225).
