Goal

If parent account and child account have different bill cycle day, how Portal/BRM align the billing?
e.g.
1. Create a parent account A with DOM=23 on May 14, then change bill DOM=16 right away. This account A's actg_next_t would be May 23 and actg_future_t would be Jun 16.
2. Create a child account B with DOM=16 on May 14, then move account B under account A as subordinate account.
   Account A pays for B.  Account B's actg_next_t would be May 16 and actg_future_t would be Jun 16.
3. When we run pin_bill_accts -pay_type 10007 (PIN_PAY_TYPE_SUBORD) on May 16, it will collect
amount from account B and update bill object of account B.
4. When running pin_bill_accts -pay_type 10001 against account A on May 23, observed:
   - total due of parent bill didn't collect the amount of the item's due of the child account.
   - the items of child account will always be outstanding item, because of zero amount due in parent's bill.

Was the issue caused by different bill days against hierarchical account?
