Missing KML icons

I am overlaying a simple KML file containing just placemarks and an icon.  Only a few locations are showing the proper icon, the rest are showing the generic yellow pushpin marker instead.  Not every point has a unique icon.  The KML file being used as I write this contains 159 points with 27 different icons.  The points display correctly in ArcMap and Google Earth.  Am I bumping up against some sort of limit or is this a server issue?

    var kmlUrl = "https://www.weather.gov/source/marfc/tw.kml";
    var kml = new KMLLayer(kmlUrl); 
    kml.on("load", function() {
      domStyle.set("loading", "display", "none");

   It would seem that the esri kml utility service is not parsing the kml file correctly.


I would call esri tech support on this issue.
