I guess the surface is being divided into two few triangles. You can
increase the number of triangles by increasing the "vertex density"
parameter. To do this, select the surface (ctrl-click it), use
inspection selector (menu Actions / Inspect), set the "Inspect" menu in
the inspector dialog to MSMS Surface, increase the "vertex density"
parameter, say from 2 to 5, and press the Enter key after typing in the
new number. That should give a smoother surface.
Another step that can improve the lighting of the surface is to enable
glossy lighting in the Lighting panel. Menu Tools / Viewing Controls /
Lighting, quality -> glossy. Some old graphics cards don't support this.
