Help me ID this samba error

This is what I see if I run testparm

Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
params.c:Parameter() - Ignoring badly formed line in configuration file: *passwd:*all*authentication*tokens*updated*successfully*
Processing section "[homes]"
Processing section "[public]"
Loaded services file OK.
Press enter to see a dump of your service definitions

I can share OK now but what does this line mean?

params.c:Parameter() - Ignoring badly formed line in configuration file: *passwd:*all*authentication*tokens*updated*successfully*

Should I be remarking out any of the following line from my smb.conf file? It appears this is where the error is coming from. Would this cause a problem if I remark them out?

unix password sync = Yes
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
passwd chat = *New*UNIX*password* %n\n *ReType*new*UNIX*password* %n\n

passwd chat = *New*UNIX*password* %n\n *ReType*new*UNIX*password* %n\n

Should be one line:
passwd chat = *New*UNIX*password* %n\n *ReType*new*UNIX*password* %n\n*passwd:*all*authentication*tokens*updated*successfully*
