That warning is issued when the newsgroup has not been subscribed
to using the `gnus-post-method' server.  So, Gnus doesn't know
the newsgroup exists in the server, and warns it to a user.  You
can make it silent by modifying the `message-syntax-checks'
variable as follows:

(add-to-list 'message-syntax-checks '(existing-newsgroups . disabled))

Cf. (info "(message)News Headers")

I'm not sure it is a good way though since the newsgroup might
really not exist in the post-method server.  I think the best way
is to leave `gnus-post-method' the default (i.e. `current').
