The thing to bear in mind here is that the condor_reconfig command isn't actually doing the reconfig, but rather sending a "do a reconfig" instruction to the daemon or daemons in question, so the feedback you're getting is regarding whether the message was successfully sent, as opposed to whether it was successfully acted upon by the remote machine.
