Actually, time should still be seconds for this kind of query.

The reason you are running out of space, if you haven't linked the
masteraccounts and subaccounts table. Therefore, SQL Server is giving
you the cartesian results of all possible combinations. If you have
5000 MBRs and 5000 subaccounts, that would be 5000*5000 which would
result in 25 million records returned. :)
So just add the ma.CustomerID = sa.CustomerID to the where
clause and all should be fine.
