How do you resolve this?

You see this bidding: 1 (you) - 4NT (LHO) - 5 (partner) - pass.

Your bid. Upon enquiry LHO, with whom you are on the same side of the screen,  tells you that they have no agreement about the meaning of 4NT. Now what does partner's 5 mean? Baffled, you call the director. He tells you and LHO to leave the table, makes enquiries with your RHO, then says 'Continue bidding.'

Is this an impossible situation? How should I interpret partner's bid? Natural? Big heart raise? If I arrive at a ridiculous contract can I claim damage?
