I've noticed that on the top right hand corner of an A320's FMS display screen it shows the time in (ZULU/UTC) on when your going to fly over a VOR or a Waypoint...For example: What would this mean?

1700.2z

Of course I know that the time would be to fly over a VOR would be 17:00 hours (ZULU) time....But my question is, what does the .2 or any mean? )or any other ".x" mean?

Thanks in advance!

Tenths of a minute. So 1700.2z would mean 1700 and 12 seconds.
