Symptoms

On application version release 12 (codeline A or B), a Payment Process Request (PPR) is created with the following options/criteria:
- Include Zero Amount invoices
- Internal bank account does NOT allow zero dollar payments

The PPR is submitted and processed without flagging any errors.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Expecting the PPR to complete with "Payment Validation Errors" or similar, due to the bank account not allowing zero dollar payments.

STEPS
-----------------------
1) Create Internal Bank Account, with option "Allow Zero Payment" check box unchecked.
2) Create a Zero Dollar Invoice
3) Make a payment for the above Zero Dollar Invoice
4) Expect the payment would fail with Validation Failure, instead the payment is made successful.

BUSINESS IMPACT
-----------------------
One might have a specific bank account to process zero dollar invoices.  So there is an expectation that bank accounts not set up to process zero dollar invoices should be checked for during the payment cycle.
