[CentOS] C 7.3 sshd will not reload

Since upgrading to 7.3 I am having a problem getting sshd to reload after
configuration changes. When I issue the command "systemctl reload sshd.service"

I get the following error: "Unit sshd.service cannot be reloaded because it is inactive."

It is obviously still running because I am connected over ssh to the machine and netstat
shows it is listening.
(vnewman pts3) # netstat -tulpn | grep ssh
tcp        0      0    *               LISTEN      29249/sshd
tcp        0      0*               LISTEN      3012/sshd: root at pts
(vnewman pts3) #

If I reboot the machine, then everything is OK.

Has anyone seen this behavior or more importantly know how to fix it?
