I used to have exactly the same problem on my tenor. Being human I (of course) blamed the instrument, until I found I had exactly the same problem on a couple of other tenors I tried.....

The solution? I pushed the mouthpiece in until the notes that were playing flat were in tune (actually until the middle of the staff B flat was in tune with an octave harmonic played with low B flat fingering). I then used a more relaxed embouchure / throat to get the other notes down to pitch. It only took a few days to get used to, and useful byproducts have been better tone (although not initially) and also better low volume control. I also now find that I'm taking in more mouthpiece.
