I suspect pbs_server didn't understand where the updates were coming from.

Since the MOM messages were being source NAT'd, pbs_server probably saw
connections coming from an 205.142 IP (itself?) and not from a valid hostname
in the $PBSHOME/server_priv/nodes file.

The server logs would be able to confirm or deny this.

MOM doesn't read that file.  PBS clients (qstat, pbsnodes, etc.) read it to get
the default server name.
