SNP calling for heterozygosity and homozygosity

I have a question about SNP calling from GATK.

We want to call the SNP from many individuals. We hope that we could have the right confident Genotype SNP. But when I check the SNP results, I find some problem, such as the following example:

scaffold_1 12816 . C T 5075.21 TruthSensitivityTranche99.90to100.00 AC=20;AF=0.417;AN=48;BaseQRankSum=14.475;DB;DP=2186;Dels=0.00;FS=1.453;HRun=1;HaplotypeScore=1.2508;InbreedingCoeff=0.8258;MQ=23.69;MQ0=948;MQRankSum=-11.287;QD=10.78;ReadPosRankSum=13.705;SB=-276.66;VQSLOD=-17.8239;culprit=ReadPosRankSum

I have 30 individuals that need to call the SNPs. I find that GT are different based on the reads depth. for one individual: 1/1:19,20:39:27.03:249,27,0. The two alleles are covered by 19 and 20 reades, the Genotype should be 0/1 as a heterozygosity. but GATK call it as a homozygosity. What is the problem?

There are lots of this situation in my data. How can I make sure the GATK's SNP are right or wrong? Hope you can give me some help?

    Yes. Our lab just updata the GATK on this May. (The Genome Analysis Toolkit (GATK) v2.4-9-g532efad, Compiled 2013/03/19 07:35:36
    Your suggestion is good. I think that I should combined with GQ and PL to call the confident SNP.

    Thanks! I will update our version.
