Yes and yes.  If a job is asking for a number of nodes outside of that range,
it will be denied access to that queue.  Note that "nodect" is a number; it
can't be combined with things like "ppn=2".

I'm not sure that a default nodect has any meaning, since you don't explicitly
request a "nodect" attribute in your job.  Instead, you set a default "nodes"
attribute.  Note that "nodes" is a string and not a number; so you can do
things like "nodes=1:ppn=1"

See pbs_queue_attributes(7B) for details on resources_{min,max,default} and
pbs_resources_linux(7B) (or whichever OS you are using).
