broken URI fragments (such as index.html#fragment)

While running the W3 Consortium's link checker
I get messages like:

Lines: 403, 405, 407, 409, 411, 413, 637
    Status: 200 OK

    Some of the links to this resource point to broken URI fragments (such as index.html#fragment). 
    Broken fragments:

        * (line 409)
        * (line 413)
        * (line 405)

What do they mean by broken fragments?

The anchors are there, e.g.:

<h2><a name="TOC130">Acknowledgments</a></h2>

and the links to them look like:

    <li><a href="frames.article.html#TOC130">Acknowledgments</a>

Should I change anything?
