Secondary Ledger Journal created by Posting in the Primary Ledger is unbalanced and cannot be posted because Suspense is not enabled.
The journal entry entered in the primary ledger gets posted without problems since the journal is entered in the functional currency of the Primary ledger.

A Rounding Account was defined for the secondary ledger but still the posting program ends in error.
The Posting log file shows either:
SHRD0181: glperp() - err_str = Unbalanced journal entry, suspense is not allowed.


PPOS0231: Your suspense account is either inactive or does not allow detail posting.

Steps to Reproduce the issue:
1. Create a primary ledger
2. Create a subledger level secondary ledger that uses a different currency than the primary ledger.
3. Create a journal in the primary ledger and post it.
4. The journal gets replicated to the secondary ledger
5. Submit posting in the secondary ledger and the error occurs.
