It will stop getting them after some configurable time period.  The
relevant bits of the sample config file:

## timeout_short determines how many days fetch gets a newsgroup which
## has been accidentally opened. The default is two days.
# timeout_short = 1

## timeout_long determines how many days fetch will wait before not getting
## an unread newsgroup any more. The default is seven days.
timeout_long = 5
