Why does my SB800 select 1/60s and not 1/250s

My D200 has 1/60s set in e2 (minimum shutter speed)and 1/250th set in e1 (maximum sync speed). The page 28 of my SB-800 manual says that in camera Program Auto (P) mode the shutter speed is automatically set to the camera's sync speed. However my D200 screen shows that that the shutter speed is actually being set to 1/60s and, e.g.f4. Anyone else seen this situation?

Lens is 17-55mm f2.8 DX
