Watch the video discussion on this link and see what people think, and have the Adepticon people address this before the tournaments in April:

After listening and reading these arguments, I would rule that the Allies of Convenience, since they are technically enemy units, can deny objectives to the Primary Detachment scoring units of the same army, and vice versa. However, the Troops within the Allied Detachment are still Troops within my army, and therefore they can score objectives on their own (assuming no other denial units in range)...the Allies are technical enemies of the Primary detachment, but not with me the Overlord who is the player controlling the entire army. That's why Desperate Allies are clarified to be non-scoring and non-denial units.

Looks like both players should be getting a Victory Point for when my Imperial Guard Allies get wiped off the table too in Purge the Alien. That's comforting!
