I'm surprised that the line gets automatically broken at all.
CSTR54 says:

"Center the next N input  text  lines
within   the   current  (line‐length
minus indent).  If N=0, any residual
count  is  cleared.   A break occurs
after each of  the  N  input  lines.
If  the  input  line is too long, it
will be left adjusted."

So I expect a line break only for input line breaks.
Overlong lines are left adjusted.  Try to use ".ad c" instead.
