according to http://www.decimaltime.hynes.net/dates.html#jd and reading "X. Calendar Functions" on this side, it seems that php "jd" is precisely mean as "Chronological Julian Day" (should it be named cjd, and primarily strictly mentioned - isn't it?), used for covnersion between calendar systems. Than it's ok (but Incomplete manual is strongly confusing here IMHO).
Even that, cJD is adjusted to a local time, so... I am rather babeled now, so nothing else :-).

This is unusable. Julian Day start at noon, not midnight. It's better to use Fabio solution (however there is a lurk problem with leap second).

function mmd($txt, $str_time) {
$t = strtotime($str_time);
$j = unixtojd($t);
$s = gmstrftime('%D %T %Z', $t);
$j_fabio = $t / 86400 + 2440587.5;

printf("${txt} => (%s) %s, %s U, %s J, or %s J<br>\n", $str_time, $s, $t, $j, $j_fabio);

//$xt = strtotime("1.1.1970 15:00.00 GMT");
$sam = "9.10.1995 02:00.01 GMT";
$spm = "9.10.1995 22:00.01 GMT";

// unixtojd for $spm returns 2450000 (OK), but for $sam returns 2450000 too! (it is wrong).
mmd("am", $sam);  // should be 2449999 (+ 0.58334)
mmd("pm", $spm);  // should be 2450000 (+ 0.41668)

If you need an easy way to convert an unix timestamp to a decimal julian day you can use:

$julianDay = $unixTimeStamp / 86400 + 2440587.5;

86400 is the number of seconds in a day;
2440587.5 is the julian day at 1/1/1970 0:00 UTC.

Its clearly stated that this function returns the Julian Day, not Julian Day + time.

If you want the time with it you will have to do something like:

Also note that epoch is in UTC time (epoch is a specific point in time - epoch is not different for every time zone), so be aware of timezone complexities.

Remember that UNIX timestamps indicate a number of seconds from midnight of January 1, 1970 on the Gregorian calendar, not the Julian Calendar.
