This point is covered in Zerwick and Grosvenor, with a reference to two 
sections in Zerwick's "Biblical Greek"

Zerwick & Grosvenor say:
"ptc. acc. as though referring to the subject of an infinitive" and cites 
s.15 ( which is under the rubric 'lack of concord in apposition'  and Mk. 
6:9 is specifically mentioned in n.15) and s.394 which deals with the 
change of case after an infinitive "where the subject of the infinitive is 
identical with an element of the main clause which is in the genitive or 
the dative etc etc "  --- and of course the dative in 6:8 is the AUTOIS who 
have been commanded.
