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

Add the following line and enter the appropriate value.

◦ 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.
