Without delving into the mystical innards of the reference pages, the two TOC pages aren't uncommon -- the second one would be generated if anyone ever used the file to generate a secondary TOC for any reason. For instance, if they wanted to include Head1 and Head2s in a primary TOC, and maybe expand to include Head3s, Procedures, Figures, and Tables in a secondary (TOC1).
Try it in a test book file without a TOC -- the subsequent TOCs incrementally number themselves.
