The behavior of this method follows IEEE Standard 754, section 4. This kind of rounding is sometimes called rounding to nearest or banker's rounding. It minimizes rounding errors that result from consistently rounding a midpoint value in a single direction. It is equivalent to calling the Round(Decimal, MidpointRounding) method with a mode argument of MidpointRounding.ToEven.
