The posting server is part of the posting profile, with the default 
profile set per group in group properties. (AFAIK it defaults to the 
first server you set, or that the group appears on if it doesn't appear 
on the first server.)

If that server is down, it'll just continue trying to connect to it, 
until you cancel it.  IIRC (it's a bit hard to test if everything's 
working) it lets you return to the compose window and set a new profile 
there, or, if you prefer, save as draft, so you can load the draft later 
when the server is alive again, and post then.
