Nice tip Ron, I record discrepancies mostly in notes of the particular event.
But the way Ron said I believe is better because the notes tends to keep under your radar.

For a long time I just entered the data I thought was most likely correct.
Then one day I tried adding a *second* Birth event.  It worked!

So now I have people with multiple birth and death events.
