Question about Haplogroup M222 > DF105/ DF109 > DF85


I have a question for Haplogroup M222 > DF105/ DF109 > DF85

I have two members that match STR distance 60/67 one has the surname McGlynn the other Glenn. They are both positive for haplogroup R-DF105/ R-DF109.

The problem is one is positive for the downstream haplogroup R-DF85 and the other is negative for it. Does this mean their STR match of 60/67 is due to convergence and they actually have a much older ancestor? Or am I missing something?
