Maybe I misunderstand your problem, but I think everything is working ok.

Leafnode does take just the groups that are on the 2nd server and not the
first, it takes ALL of the articles that are on the 2nd server and not the

When it's "considering articles", it's looking to see if you already have
them.  Most likely you do, but it is still checking, just to make sure.

What Leafnode is doing is XHDR Message-ID lowwater-highwater and taking
that output and seeing what you do or don't need.  It's not really
refetching articles that you already have.

If you are really concerned about not even doing those look ups (perhaps
you're on a very expensive connection and don't want to waste even the
little bit of time it takes to check that), then you might consider looking
at nntpcache, either on it's own, or in between leafnode and your servers.
