Jitter Spec of 33250A

Hi there, 


Would like to check with KEYSIGHT on how to read the jitter spec of the 33250A function generator. 


The datasheet specs a square wave signal (< 2 MHz) to have a jitter of: 0.01% + 525 ps


What does the 0.01% refer to? Is it 0.01% of the period of the square wave the function generator is outputting? 


If that is so, does that mean that when outputting a square wave of say 50Hz, I would expect a jitter of upwards of (2us + 525ps)?
