Symptoms

On :  BRM 7.5 PS8, Vertex STQ 4.0.6

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR  
-----------------------
The balance for an invoice on parent account reads as $0.00, but the balances on that invoice for 2 sub-child accounts read as $28,676.18 and as $25.00. only one invoice is open on the parent account at this time in the amount of $168,508.34. That difference of $28,701.18 on the 2 sub-child accounts is causing the "Amount due for all bills" on the Balance tab to be inflated from the correct balance of $168,508.34 to $197,209.52.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Payment allocation should be correct with no extra balances on the child accounts.

STEPS
-----------------------
Parent account (with no plan) has 5 non-paying child accounts which are having different balances, the total balance is $168,508.34.
The user has to split the payment because of the credit card payment has a max amount limitation.

1. Make Payment Batch 1 = $69508.34

  child1      $62150.66    allocating $62150.66   -> $40832.16 allocated, $21318.50 Balance remain
  child2      $17000.00    allocating  $3014.18   -> $17000.00 allocated.                      
  child3       $4318.50    allocating  $4318.50   ->  $4318.50 allocated.
  child4         $25.00    allocating    $25.00          $0.00 allocated,    $25.00 Balance remain
  child5      $85014.18                                                   $85014.18 Balance remain

   $62150.66 is actually allocated, and $7357.68 somehow got hold.

2. Make Payment Batch 2 = $99000.00

  child1      $21318.50    allocating  $21318.50  ->     $0.00 allocated, $21318.50 Balance remain
  child2              -  
  child3              -
  child4         $25.00    allocating     $25.00  ->    $25.00 allocated.
  child5      $85014.18    allocating  $77656.50  -> $21293.50 allocated, $63720.68 Balance remain

   The parent account has balance even out with total payment $168,508.34, but the child accounts has in-consistent balance remained.

Note:
The credit card payment on the account had to be broken up into two payments because Chase Paymentech doesn't allow transactions of over $100K.
