Event ID 1000, Sharepoint on SBS 2003

I am getting the following message in my error log once every hour.

Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      Windows SharePoint Services 2.0
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      1000
Date:            3/31/2006
Time:            12:55:15 PM
User:            N/A
Computer:      D921VW61
#50070: Unable to connect to the database STS_d921vw61_357220642 on D921VW61\SharePoint.  Check the database connection information and make sure that the database server is running.

The server is running, and the internal website is working fine.  I don't even know what this database is, as the assigned content database is STS_D921VW61_1.

    Probably this:

    does not affect the functionality of Windows SharePoint Services or of Windows Small Business Server 2003. If you can connect to the Windows SharePoint Services Web site successfully, you can safely ignore this error message.
