any reputable latex book will tell you what's allowed by default

array.sty adds mb<>!; but it also adds the ability to define column
spec letters (dcolumn uses that)

i would guess your TNC (assuming they're for real) are defined using
array.  look for \NewColumnType commands in the document you're
working on (or a package it loads).
