But if a server goes down while a job is running and the job completes,
will pbs_mom know to return the job obit to *another* server?

That is what the binding of the server to a port allows.  pbs_mom picks
up the bound address, so if it is an alias the job obit will go where
the alias goes.  If another server gets the alias, the obit goes there.
