Phantom contact sets?

I have a contact set that is defined as beam joints bonded to a flat plate. Whenever I run my analysis, the beams are displacing, so I'm guessing they aren't truly bonded. Odd thing is I had this exact same contact set defined in a previous iteration of this model, and it worked fine. I do get a cryptic message "beam joint cannot be projected onto surface"...I'm guessing they are related? Anyone encountered something similar before?
