Accountability in project execution

How is accountability distributed during the project execution phase? In other words, how much accountable is the project manager, the project sponsor, and the stakeholders during this phase? Is it possible that the project manager can have zero accountability during this phase and the project sponsor assumes nearly all project accountability?

This is a decision which needs to be made BEFORE execution starts and might be documented by a RACI ( http://blog.theprojectnotebook.com/2009/05/expectations-raci-and-raci-vs/ ).  In general, as the project manager, you can expect to be at least responsible if not accountable.
