IMHO whether it's allowable and whether it's a good idea are two different things. If there has been a fiduciary breach, the bank has assisted and could be alleged to have been a party to the transaction(didn't say guilty of - said alleged to have been). You can better protect the bank by requiring the Trustee to write a check to make the transfer. This serves to remove the bank from the picture and creates a better audit trail.
