[torqueusers] qsub rules for converting partial job ids?

If you submit a script to PBS with the command
qsub -q at abc.com
with no other options, and if, within that script
there is the PBS directive:
#PBS -W depend="afterok:5"
to what server should the "5" be bound? The default
PBS server or the one specified in the -q option?
qsub (eventually) in processing this statement in the
script calls get_server(). get_server in the module
comments refers to section 5.1.2 of the ERS indicating
the steps for determining the server in the case where
a job id does not contain a server name. But this description
seems to apply only to "requests" not directive options.
It appears (from the logic flow in qsub.c) that the job id
"5" will be resolved to the default PBS server name and not
the server name specified on the qsub command line because
the destination specified in the -q option is processed after
the script has been read and the job id in the depend list
Is this the intended behavior, implying that in a multiple
server environment one must fully-qualify all jobids in
