"Against" in this context means "lowering the value of" - which is the same in meaning as the one you listed.

A bank balance is the amount of money you have in a bank account. If you draw a check, you are taking money out of that bank account, it is lowering the balance.

  • To the account of mean?

  • I'm not sure what you are asking, but the meaning you found is intended to describe the first object lowering some value of the second object.
