The message tells you what to do - reduce the time step. If that message appears at the first timestep, maybe you can improve the initial settings.

The number of in the bracket indicate the VOF subtime steps needed to complete 1 physical time step. The time step would be such that

VOF sub time step < time step < 100* VOF sub time step

where VOF sub time step = Time step size given/ Number in the bracket.

Hope it helps Shanti
