It worth a shot, I suppose. I have entries in /etc/services as follows:

# Standard PBS services
pbs           15001/tcp           # pbs server (pbs_server)
pbs_mom       15002/tcp           # mom to/from server
pbs_resmom    15003/tcp           # mom resource management requests
pbs_sched     15004/udp           # scheduler
