Mass conservation in VOF steady state

I am trying to do a steady state multiphase simulation in a closed domain using VOF method. I do get a converged solution but when I check the mass of the phases, particularly the heavier one, I find that it is much less than what I had initialized the problem with.
How does the solver say it is converged without enforcing mass convservation?
Can anyone tell me how I can ensure FLUENT gives a solution with mass conservation?
Thanks in anticipation,
