Do your other accounts appear to be correct? If so, it's better to leave this account as it is, since deleting transactions within it would also delete the other side of those transactions, where they transfer money to or from other accounts. You can open this account, go to Account -> Edit Account from the menu bar, and choose to mark it as Inactive, which will hide it from most places in the program.
The other accounts related to the 401k/IRA are not correct. I was thinking
that I would need to move the transactions, but didn't want to create more
problems. In tracing from the related account by going to the other side,
it brings me to an "account" that was part of the split transaction. For
example, from the "Deleted Account" transaction, the other side shows up as
as transfer from the paycheck to employer benefit: medical. When I show
the other side of that transaction, I get to the "Tax:State" register.
My first thought was to create a new account and move the transactions
there, but then I realized these represent deposits into a 401k that isn't
there, but the balance was eventually rolled into the IRA that is there.
The IRA balance is not correct. I didn't want to start moving stuff around
and affecting other balances.
New information. I went back to Quicken to look at why the transactions
were grouped into a "Deleted Account". I found that MD just imported what
was there. Apparently, a couple years ago the account was deleted (Quicken
didn't say anything). I think I'll try to fix it in Quicken and then

Sounds like a plan. I'm honestly not really sure what is going on in Quicken with that deleted account. If you can't sort it out in there, we can try to think of a way to take into account these transactions in Moneydance. We need to do something other than simply deleting that account, since that will affect all of the balances in the linked accounts.
