COMMENTS
Conjecture: a(n) > 0 for all n > 3, and a(n) = 1 only for n = 4, 6, 11, 21, 54, 253, 325.
This is slightly stronger than part (ii) of the conjecture in A262439.
I have verified the conjecture for n up to 10^5. - Zhi-Wei Sun, Sep 27 2015

EXAMPLE
a(4) = 1 since pi(4*5/2+1) = pi(11) = 5 = 1 + 4 = pi(2) + pi(7) = pi(1*2/2+1) + pi(3*4/2+1).
a(6) = 1 since pi(6*7/2+1) = pi(22) = 8 = 2 + 6 = pi(4) + pi(16) = pi(2*3/2+1) + pi(5*6/2+1).
a(11) = 1 since pi(11*12/2+1) = pi(67) = 19 = 5 + 14 = pi(11) + pi(46) = pi(4*5/2+1) + pi(9*10/2+1).
a(21) = 1 since pi(21*22/2+1) = pi(232) = 50 = 14 + 36 = pi(46) + pi(154) = pi(9*10/2+1) + pi(17*18/2+1).
a(54) = 1 since pi(54*55/2+1) = pi(1486) = 235 = 30 + 205 = pi(121) + pi(1276) = pi(15*16/2+1) + pi(50*51/2+1).
a(253) = 1 since pi(253*254/2+1) = pi(32132) = 3447 = 747 + 2700 = pi(5672) + pi(24311) = pi(106*107/2+1) + pi(220*221/2+1).
a(325) = 1 since pi(325*326/2+1) = pi(52976) = 5406 = 1446 + 3960 = pi(12091) + pi(37402) = pi(155*156/2+1) + pi(37402*37403/2+1).
