You can fix the problem like this:

  bond {
    atom_selection_1 = "name SM and chain M and resname SM and resseq 1"
    atom_selection_2 = "name OE1 and chain A and resname GLU and resseq 285"
    symmetry_operation = -x,y,-z+.5
    distance_ideal = 2.5
    sigma = 0.2

The symmetry operation above is just an example and most likely
not the one you need. The find out the proper one, use Coot to draw
the symmetry copy of your molecule (near the SM), then click on the
symmetry-equivalent OE1. Coot should show you the symmetry operation
that was used to draw the atom. Simply copy it into the phenix.refine
parameter file.
