Question: Initial Condition of Multibody Model Joints

I am currently working on a MapleSim model that is similar to the Stewart Platform, yet less complex. I have built a tripod that is fixed to the ground with three legs connecting to a platform. Connecting the leg to the ground is a revolute joint and connecting the leg to the platform is a spherical joint. When I change the initial conditions of the spherical joint from 'Treat as Guess' to 'Ignore' 2 of the 3 legs will change orientiation. I'm not sure why this occurs to only 2 legs, can someone help me?

 

I feel like this is a silly question, but I've been stumped on it for quite some time now.
