Dynamical behavior of on-off intermittency around chaos synchronization-desynchronization bifurcation parameter line is investigated in coupled identical chaotic oscillators. Along this parameter line, we find that on-off intermittency can transit from phase-unlocking status to phase-locking one in the phase space of variable differences, which can be regarded as a codimension-two bifurcation, i.e., combinative bifurcations of desynchronization and phase locking. In the phase-locking case, the motions of all oscillators are chaotic and they show on-off intermittency with respect to the synchronous manifold, however, spatial phase order of variable differences is clearly established.
