I'm using ParallelTable[] to calculate a function over a range of my parameters , ($\omega,\ell$). This seems to be working well (in terms of speed increase) except for some strange Precision issues.

I set the $MinPrecision=40 at the start of the notebook as well as my working precision, precision goal and accuracy goal for some computations later in the notebook as

     wp=$MinPrecision;
 ac=$MinPrecision-8;
     pg=wp/2;

The rest of my code basically defines some helper functions before going on to the main function (that I feed into ParallelTablParallelTable). This main function uses the helper functions along with NDSolve and NIntegrate to do some computations, and it's in these that I feed the Working Precision->wp ,AccuracyGoal->ac, PrecisionGoal->pg.

I have used DistrubuteDefinitionsDistributeDefinitions on all my variables, helper functions, and the main function, and even on $MinPrecision, also all my initial conditions for NDSolve have N[...,wp] wrapped around them, but still when I use ParallelTable[...] I get errors:

 Precision::precsm. Requested precision 39.153977328439204` is smaller than $MinPrecision. 

I don't get any such error when I simply use Do[...] or Table[..] on my main function, and indeed the results differ at the 33rd decimal place, which is the decimal the above number is precision too. I have no idea what this number is unfortunately, it doesn't look like any of my outputs or inputs.

I just don't understand how this could not crop up with the non-parallelized forms, but crop up with parallelized?

Minimal Example

This is much simpler than my code, but I think it still captures it and the problem:

Definitions:

M = 1;
$MinPrecision = 40;
wp = $MinPrecision;
ac = $MinPrecision - 8;
pg = wp/2;
rinf = 15000;

The main function to be parallelized:

dGenBessE[\[Omega]_?NumericQ, l_?IntegerQ] :=

Attempt to run it with Paralleize for two different values:

Result

For me this leads to a
