Millennial has some problems with braces:

\documentclass{minimal}
\usepackage{millennial}
%\pdfmapfile{+millennial.map} % if needed
\begin{document}
$\underbrace{a,b,\ldots,z}_{n}$
\end{document}

which fouriernc doesn't:

\documentclass{minimal}
\usepackage{tgschola}
\usepackage{fouriernc}
\begin{document}
$\underbrace{a,b,\ldots,z}_{n}$
\end{document}

Hope it helps.
