No, you're right. I came across this a couple of days ago and fixed
fetchnews to report the original banner line ("503 NNTP server
unavailable [...]" in your case) to the log.
leafnode 2.0b8_ma10pre1 is fixed in this respect, but I haven't
announced that version because I am awaiting feedback on the MacOS X
compilability of 2.0b8_ma10pre1.
