Ah, I can post to server-b, but do not wish to.  Also, the groups isp1.* 
and isp2.* exist on all the servers, because other people have accidentally 
created them, but they are not propagated, and they should only be on the 
relevant servers.

For example, one batch of groups are called ntl.*, and while they do exist 
on many servers, only users of the NTL ISP can post to them on the NTL 
servers, and so I wish to restrict posting of them to server-c.

Ah well.
