[torqueusers] pbs_sched: badconn, "unauthorized host" on multihoned system

The head node of my Ubuntu 10.04 cluster is multihoned: there's a public interface ("frontend") and a private interface ("frontend-int") . Recently there was a configuration change on the private interface, and I think that's preventing jobs from being submitted. 

I have the torque server configured to run on the public interface, which I did by adding the following line to /etc/init.d/torque_server: "DAEMON_SERVER_OPTS="-H frontend"

If I try to submit a job on frontend, it remains queued, even though there are nodes available. Each time I submit a job, I see that looks like the following line on /var/log/daemon.log: 

Aug  4 13:16:53 island100 pbs_sched: badconn, frontend-int on port 814 unauthorized host

If I look at the info about the submitted job, it says that the owner is on frontend-int, instead of frontend:

Job Id: 196.frontend
    Job_Name = test.sh
    Job_Owner = lorin at frontend-int
    job_state = Q
    queue = batch
    server = frontend
    Checkpoint = u
    ctime = Wed Aug  4 13:16:53 2010
    Error_Path = frontend:/home/lorin/test.sh.e196
    Hold_Types = n
    Join_Path = n
    Keep_Files = n
    Mail_Points = a
    mtime = Wed Aug  4 13:16:53 2010
    Output_Path = frontend:/home/lorin/test.sh.o196
    Priority = 0
    qtime = Wed Aug  4 13:16:53 2010
    Rerunable = True
    Resource_List.nodect = 1
    Resource_List.nodes = 1
    Resource_List.walltime = 01:00:00
    Variable_List = PBS_O_HOME=/home/lorin,PBS_O_LANG=en_US.UTF-8,
    etime = Wed Aug  4 13:16:53 2010
    submit_args = test.sh

It appears that it's associating the job queue with lorin at frontend-int instead of lorin at frontend. How does torque determine which host is associated with the job owner on a multihoned system, and how can I configure it so it associates jobs front frontend instead of frontend-int?
