Does the trust allow distributions to be allocated to a child, but actually paid to the parents, not directly to the child?

Yes. The deed specifically provides a number of ways that the trustee can apply distributions on behalf of a beneficiary, including by "paying the income or capital to a parent or guardian of the Beneficiary or any other person where the income or capital will be applied for the benefit of the Beneficiary if that Beneficiary is a minor or is otherwise under a legal disability".
