Thank you for the clarification.  This is what I did not understand.  I
read the manual and got the impression that when --fallback has not been
given, if a given substitute cannot be found (regardless of whether or
not a substitute server claimed to provide one), then Guix will not
build it.  I see now that my understanding was mistaken.

I've attached a patch which tries to clarify this in the manual.  What
do you think of it?
