That's not an error.
But the fact that you think it is shows that
the documentation can be improved :-)
Thanks for reporting it.

The range must be [0..60] to accommodate the
occasional `positive' leap second.

I'll add a note to that effect to date's --help output and info documentation.
The former change will also correct the automatically generated man page.
