Hello my fellow homebrewers!

I'm planning on naturally carbonating my 5 gal batch of beer and have a question about the Carbonation Tool in BeerSmith2.

The tool is telling me that I need twice as much corn sugar if I'm bottle conditioning than if I'm naturally carbonating in a keg.  This doesn't make sense to me...    Am I missing something?  I was hoping to prime the whole batch and rack half into a 2.5 gal keg and bottle the other half.

Thanks!
