K3 frequency delta from receive to transmit


I have always thought that if I set the receive signal zero beat on WWV and see less than 2 Hz error would be reflected in the same possible offset on any band.  I was told that on 40 meters, my carrier on SSB was 20 Hz low.  Is this possible, and if so why???  Thanks.
