Welcome to any number of telecom Rb’s …. 

The gotcha is that the spur spec’s are not always met. As you might guess, doing 
testing over really wide DDS ranges is impractical. Some designs use cleanup loops.
The gotcha then becomes a spur (say at 0.053 Hz) that is inside the cleanup loop 
bandwidth ….
