Printing Overview Map with Feature Layer Service

I was wondering if anyone has come across a problem where the overview map fails to zoom and causes the PrintingService to fail when you have a FeatureService in the operationalLayer Definition?

Basic Steps are:

1.  I'm creating polygons based on a statewide parcel layer for North Carolina.
2.  I several feature services added to the javascript application that allow users to cut the parcel up into smaller polygons and then add information such as creeks, fences, dirt roads, etc on the property.
3.  Then I want to print that area on a map.
4.  I have a layout template set up where the Active Dataframe's definition gets set up by the json I pass from the app.
5.  The overview map is set to zoom out 100% from the extent of the Active Dataframe and show the extent box.
6.  The printing works with the feature layers in the map when I set the Overview map NOT to zoom.
7.  But when I set it to zoom the service fails.
8.  As a work around I replace all the feature services with their MapService equivilent in the json and the zoom works fine. 
9.  The only problem is that I can't change the symbology of the feature service or it will be out of sync with the map service.

I am using ArcGIS Server 10.1 SP 1 (
