Getting inconsistent images out of my D4s.

After shooting a couple weddings and an engagement session today, it appears that my D4s is not focusing properly. I only use my 700-200 2.8 on the camera, which works just fine on my D4. I can' t quite put my finger on it, but it seems as if two or three out of every fifteen images is very soft. It may even be back focusing a bit, but if it were back focusing, wouldn't the images consistently back focus? Any suggestions?

D4s, D4, D3, D800, D610
Nikon 24-70 2.8, 70-200 2.8 VRII
Nikon 28 1.8G, 35 1.4G, 85 1.4G, 105 2.8 VR
4-SB900, 1-SB910
Eyes like a shutter, mind like a lens!
