Using Dark Gifts with NPCs, the Dark Symmetry Pool, and "ally NPCs"

A few related questions:

What if the GM wants to have NPCs just make the Willpower tests to activate Dark Gifts? I like it because it lets NPC Heretics generate Bleed, and if NPCs don't have to roll, then there will be no Bleed. Plus, I feel like the Symmetry is fickle enough to say screw you to its own followers and not always work. The GM could always spend DSPs as normal for extra d20s on the Willpower test. So, I think I've answered my own question--that would work fine.

Second, what if you have a Heretic temporarily working WITH the PCs? Should that NPC use the "ally NPC rules" and generate DSPs or should the Heretic have to spend DSPs? What if the PCs don't know the person is a heretic and you don't want the rules giving anything up?

As in all things RPGs, the GM may change the rules as he sees fit. I rather like the idea of anything that fools the PCs into trusting one the shouldn't.

To him and the friend of his friend;
But never a man
shall friendship make
With one of his foeman's friends.
