I am getting following error message daily into my error log.
I am running FULL Backup, Diff Backup an T-Log Backup.
This message is every morning early I see and looks like during same time my T-log backup job also running.
I have also checked that MSDB is in SIMPLE recovery mode and it's not part of my T-Log back up, it's only part of FULL BAckup - weekly.

BACKUP failed to complete the command BACKUP LOG msdb. Check the backup application log for detailed messages.

Something is wrong with your log backup job then. Is it a maintenance plan or custom code? Recreate it if it's a maintenance plan.
