Cause

MailStream Plus produces the error message [Can only have 1 ENT PT when SCF PT used] when you have the parameters NDC PT, SCF PT, and two ENT PT cards.

Resolution

UPDATED: October 16, 2017
Information From the Reference Guide - All Platforms MailStream Plus Release 8.3.3 page 287
You can have more than one type of XXX PT parameter in a single MailStream Plus job. However, if you use any combination of ADC PT, NDC PT and/or SCF PT parameters, you can only have one ENT PT parameter (and it must be marked as the default in position 72).

The resolution is to add separate ENT PT cards for the NDC entry points and the SCF entry points then add the two 
ENT PT parameter cards.
