We are also moving to submit only hosts. I also put the submit host in
the acl_host list, but that did not have the desired effect. Maybe this 
a bug, i do not know. I found two solutions/work arounds:
  1) Put the submit hostname in /etc/hosts.equiv file of the torque server

  2) Another one add the submit host to the cluster. You do not have to 
start the pbs_mom daemon and edit the torque.cfg on the torque server:
