Here is a snippet of the output from the daily run output

Rotating accounting logs and gathering statistics:
sa: converting user accounting stats: Inappropriate file type or format
sa: user accounting initialization failed

Are you intending to use the system accounting functionality?  If not,
you probably don't need the files in /var/account at all (by default,
there wouldn't be any).
I probably turned them by accident on while hastily going through the install. My (home) mail server had been down for nearly a week waiting for new hardware to arrive, and I probably was not paying quite as much attention as I should have been with the base install. While I do not need the accounting feature, I was hoping to understand why it is not working to broaden my understanding of how the system functions. I guess I will do some more reading and just disable it if I cannot figure it out.
