Interesting problem.  That would cause pbs_server to advertise itself as

pbs_server tells pbs_mom "Hi, here's a job from localhost, let me know
when it is done."
pbs_mom dutifully runs the job, sending status updates to all of its
configured servers.
When the jobs exits, pbs_mom attempts to send the jobobit to localhost.
