We need even more digits of pi to handle bigger argument.
Example, assumed all calculation in 24 digits precision :

sin(411557987)
= sin(411557987 mod (2 * pi))
~ sin(411557987 mod (2 * 3.14159265358979323846264))
= sin(2.53671649518336E-9)
= 2.5367164951833599972794E-9

Rounded back to 12 digits, sin(X) = 2.53671649518E-9.
24 digits math only get 7 accurate digits !

Using spigot calculator:
> spigot --printf=%.12g sin(411557987)
2.53671605196e-09
