[R] time question

I have this script which I use to get an epoch with accuracy of 1
second (based on R's inability to calculate millisecond-accurate
timestamps -- at least I have not seen a straightforward solution :)
nowInSeconds <- as.numeric(Sys.time())
nowInMS <- nowInSeconds * 1000
when running this I get the following:
> nowInSeconds <- as.numeric(Sys.time())
> nowInMS <- nowInSeconds * 1000
I wonder where the 93 milliseconds come from. Is this a random number?
A rounding error? Can somebody explain this?
