Odd phenomena with N9020A Amplitude measurements

We are using the N9020A to calibrate and test the power output of signal sources and noticed an odd phenomena - when we test the signal source with the same spectrum that was used to calibrate it we get results centered around the nominal value as expected, however when a different spectrum is used to test the source the results are offset by ~0.5-0.7 dB (after compensating for line losses between the source and the spectrum. 

Any idea what could cause this?
