31P NMR was performed on the normal state in the newly discovered iron pnictide superconductor BaFe2(As0.67P 0.33)2 with maximum Tc of 30 K. The Knight shift is temperature-independent while the nuclear spin-lattice relaxation rate divided by temperature (T1T)-1 exhibits a more than twofold increase on cooling. This contrasting behavior clearly indicates the development of low-lying antiferromagnetic fluctuations in BaFe2(As 0.67P0.33)2 as observed in (Ba 1-xKx)Fe2As2. The observed low-lying antiferromagnetic fluctuations may be universal in optimally doped "122" superconductors, in contrast to "1111" superconductors.
