The main engine on the Atlas, as with most orbital launchers, is gimballed such that it can direct thrust to offset the imbalanced thrust from the boosters (or any other disturbance). Atlas uses only as many boosters as it needs for a given payload -- from zero to 5 -- and some of those configurations are asymmetrical. It looks especially odd using only a single booster., as in this video:
