Only things I could find out (not too much tested, sorry):

2 upstreams, A and B. group.from.A only served by A.
'fetchnews -f' and unavailable A
--> leafnode does not know group group.from.A any more ("no such group")
After another successful connect to A with 'fetchnews' this problem is
gone, pending outgoing messages to group.from.A are then sent.

Iff at least one upstream is available, active built (with the list of
that/those servers).  Groups only served by unreachable servers are
unknown until next successful connect.
