That message suggests that the font was not made avaiable to kpathsea, 
and that
  Adobe times was substituted.  I see that other replies have given you

useful to let this aid you to recognize when an arbitrary font 
substitution that is supposed to "make it better for you" fails.  It 
happens all too often.
