Some BankAmerica Corp. branches in small Texas communities soon may go on the auction block, industry sources say.

The company is expected to release, as early as this month, a list of as many as 21 rural branches that it wants to sell. The branches, located mostly in towns with fewer than 5,000 residents, are said to have less than $20 million apiece in deposits. Currently, about 50 of the Texas unit's 241 branches fall into this category.
