This sounds like you tripped a Max-Prefix limit by advertising too many 
prefixes at some point (maybe when you first configured the session, when
it's easy for the session to come up before you've configured the prefix list).

Once you've tripped Max-Prefix, you won't be able to establish a new connection
to them until they reset their end.
