The functionality you're referring to is actually part of the  
opentaps financials module which is fully compatible with OFBiz.

Right now, purchase invoices are only credited to the configured  
Accounts Payable account.  If you want to credit to different  
payables accounts... the only idea I have right now is to extend the  
general ledger posting routine to create another invoice item type  
which posts to another accounts payable account.  This is fairly easy  
to do actually, since the ledger posting stuff is very modular.  Of  
course, if you have any other suggestions, I'd be happy to consider  
them as well.

We're planning a lot for the financials module right now.  You can  
see most of it here: http://www.opensourcestrategies.com/ofbiz/
