Limit to number of Mounts? (NFS)

When I try to mount my 65th directory via nfs, I get:

+ mount -v -t nfs fogel:/tmp/60 /tmp/nfs/60
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on fogel:/tmp/60,
or too many mounted file systems

and thereafter.

Is there a hard limit to the number of volumes that
can be mounted via NFS? Why? Where is it documented?
How do we change it, for example, to have no arbitrary limit?
