The master account must have the contact space to assign a contact limit to its sub-account.
Here are some example scenarios:
A. A master account with a contact limit of 1,000 contacts and zero contacts in their account can create one or two sub-accounts with a contact limit of 500 each.
B. If the master account has one contact, they can only create one sub-account with a 500-contact limit.
C. If the master account has 501 contacts, there is no additional space to allocate contacts to a sub-account; therefore, it can not create a subaccount.
