DSOX3024 RMS Measurement

I connected my Boonton power meter calbrator output to my DSOX3024 with a 50 ohm load into ch1 (power meter calibration is due next month).  When I select the AC, RMS, FS measurement it reads 228 mv.   The output of the calibrator is 50MHz, 0dbm (1mv) into a 50 ohm load.  I don't understand why the 3024 measuring 228 mv when the signal is only 1 mv.   The signal is a pure sinewave.
