The problem is that the Liability account defaulted on the “Payment request” is the liability account defined in Financial Options and cannot be modified as the Invoice is created in Validated status.
This account is “a Third Party Controled” account.
That means, as the party is not identified on the invoice Header (Supplier Number is Null), when Create Accounting is run, the system fails with the message "The account code combination xxx for line x is a control account

Expect to be able to custom Liability account for Payment request invoices, to be different from other invoices

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Payables Manager
2. Setup > Accounting Setups > Subledger Accounting Setup > Accounting Methods Builder > Methods and Definitions > Journal Line Definition > Journal Line Type
3. Assign Custom Account derivation rule


 Custom Account derivation rule for Liability, Basic Journal Line type to met the different account for:

- Payment request invoices

- Other invoices
