There is contradictory information present in document and pin.conf file,


As per documentation :

BRM Documentation -> Billing Customers -> Setting up and running billing->Setting the bill unit status when billing errors occur

Add the following line and enter the appropriate value.
◦ 0 sets the billing status in the /billinfo object. This is the default.
◦ 1 does not set the billing status in the /billinfo object.
- pin_bill_accts unset_error_status 1

As per the pin.conf file present at ${PIN_HOME}/apps/pin_billd the parameter is set_error_status, the description is as following:

By default, this configuration parameter is disabled, and the billing_status is not updated by pin_bill_accts.
If the value of the entry is 1 , the billing status is updated with PIN_BILL_ERROR value for both both subordinate and parent billinfo objects
If the value is 0 (zero) the billing_status is not updated with the PIN_BILL_ERROR value.

Which of the two flags is valid and how to check which flag is being presently used?
