Quality of TRL kit

Hi,

I have fabricated a TRL-kit on PCB. Unfortunately, the sma connector foot print degrades the return loss of the connector-pcb transistion down to approx. -15dB. Is there a rule-of-thumb on how good the return loss of a TRL kit need to be in order to work? I guess there has to be some sort of limit? The lines inside the sma connectors are good 50ohm lines.
