Don't know

but you can from a single host submit to multiple servers. This is of  
course if the host is defined as a submit host firewall etc.

#PBS -q quque at server

So he could avoid sshing around to three machines.  His script just  
puts 1000 on each queue at server thats the simplest bet.

On the other hand, if you use Moab (maybe maui but we use moab)  you  
can have moab move jobs between other moabs or RM's.  Quite cool, but  
not simple but very flexible.
