Ahh, I see the confusion. So in Tcl, "#" is the comment character. For reasons that I'm sure made sense at the time, "!" is the comment character in parameter files, which are used extensively to tell the parser to ignore everything else on the line that might be useful for humans. So to comment out the offending lines, they should be:
!ON1 CLGR1 -0.2000 3.4000 ! NBFIX for carbonyl oxygen in nucleic acid bases
!ON1C CLGR1 -0.2000 3.4000 ! NBFIX for carbonyl oxygen in nucleic acid bases

Ok I found the file (par_all36_cgeff.prm) but there are many lines with "!". i commented out the following lines but still recieve the same error:
#ON1 CLGR1 -0.2000 3.4000 ! NBFIX for carbonyl oxygen in nucleic acid bases
#ON1C CLGR1 -0.2000 3.4000 ! NBFIX for carbonyl oxygen in nucleic acid bases
Is this the line you are referring to comment out?

Comment out the line with "!". It should be in the parameter file for the ions (grep ON1 *.prm).

Thank you Josh - how do I correct this for NBFIX terms?

Alright, upon further reflection, I hadn't considered potential NBFIX
terms for ions within the force field. If NAMD encounters an atomtype
within an NBFIX-specified interaction (such as those for ions with
carbonyls) that wasn't previously identified, this message will crop up
too. This is probably the 1% of time that I was unreasonably certain. :)
