I don't think I understand what exactly you expected to happen.  In
"emacs -Q" with no margins, "C-x 3" produces 2 windows: one that is
38-column wide, the other 37-column wide.  Since you requested 2
20-column margins, they alone need 40 columns.  How can Emacs produce
a window with such margins out of 38 columns it has at its disposal?
That isn't enough even for the margins, let alone the text area.

In such a situation, I think refusing to split is a reasonable
response: the user asked for something that is not doable.  What
alternative behavior did you expect?
