Actually, I spoke too soon. This is what the standard says:

template <class Clock, class Duration>
cv_status wait_until(unique_lock<mutex>& lock,
const chrono::time_point<Clock, Duration>& abs_time);


— The function will unblock when signaled by a call to notify_one(), a call
to notify_all(), expiration of the absolute timeout (30.2.4) specified by
abs_time, or spuriously.

Returns: cv_status::timeout if the absolute timeout (30.2.4) specified by
abs_time expired, otherwise cv_status::no_timeout.

This seems pretty clear to me.
