Magnetic topological insulators are outstanding candidates for the realization of topological 1D and 2D superconducting phases when coupled by proximity to ordinary s-wave superconductors. We study normal-superconductor-normal junctions made of narrow (wirelike) or wide (filmlike) magnetic topological insulator slabs with a central proximitized sector. Specifically, we investigate how the electronic transport depends on the topological phase of the central superconductor when the voltage bias is split asymmetrically between the two normal leads of the junction. The occurrence of charge-nonconserving Andreev processes entails a nonzero conductance related to an electric current flowing to ground from the proximitized sector of the junction. We show that topologically protected Majorana modes require an antisymmetry of this conductance with respect to the point of equally split bias across the junction.
