Why were SMS messages counted against my message allowance?

During the Superbowl, I sent a very large number of play-by-play SMS messages to my daughter as she does not have TV. These were all sent while connected to my wifi at home. I now find these were all charged against my message allowance. How may this be corrected?

Thanks,

Olddoc

SMS messages will always count against your "message allowance".  They don't use WiFi nor data.  SMS uses the voice channel.
