This is the Taylor-Series of $$\arccos(sinc(x))$$:
$\frac{1}{\sqrt{3}}(x-\frac{x^3}{90}-\frac{x^5}{4200}-\frac{x^7}{378000}+\frac{533 x^9}{6286896000}+\frac{2599 x^{11}}{454053600000}+\frac{75799 x^{13}}{572107536000000})+O(x^{14})$

The correct value is $$\frac{6,286,896,000}{533}=\frac{17,325\cdot9!}{533}\approx11,795,302.0638$$ instead of $$32\cdot9! = 11,612,160$$.
Thus instead of 32 the factor is $$\frac{17,325}{533}\approx32.5047$$.

Now I hope it's clear why.
