No.  The best you can do is either force posting to the primary server
only (by running "fetchnews -l" before fetchnews) or automatically move
failed postings into out.going again.  If you do the latter then
fetchnews will notice that the article has already been posted and not
repost it.

Code to do the moving: 

# Move failed postings back into outgoing queue.  This works around a
# buglet when posting to multiple servers.
if [ "" != "`ls /var/spool/news/failed.postings/`" ]; then
   mv /var/spool/news/failed.postings/* /var/spool/news/out.going
