David Schwartz, the CTO of Ripple clarified the reason last year in a reply to a tweet by a user who thought it was due to Cobalt.
It's possible the network was unable to agree on a close time. Consensus won't wait if only the close time is unagreed (not worth delaying transaction confirmation) and has to try again next ledger.
