Could be unidirectional errors causing packet loss at the Level3 router.
Also could be load on their router. Since their router is generating the
notification and tearing down the session, a call to their NOC asking why
it is happening is a good place to start.
Also check the stats in "sh ip bgp sum" or "sh ip bgp nei" for retransmits
as a sign of potential packet loss toward/at their router:
