And solved this problem also:
    (setq gnus-group-jump-list
           '("d" "nndraft:drafts")

    (defmacro gnus-group-jump-bind (key-binding group-to-jump-to)
      `(define-key gnus-group-mode-map ,(symbol-value key-binding)
        (lambda ()
          (gnus-group-jump-to-group ,(symbol-value group-to-jump-to)))))

    (defun gnus-group-do-jump-bind ()
       (dolist (this-jump gnus-group-jump-list)
         (let ((this-group (second this-jump))
               (this-key   (concat "vj" (first this-jump))))
         (gnus-group-jump-bind this-key this-group))))


And this does what I want. A problem could be that:
     (gnus-group-jump-bind "vjd" "nndraft:drafts")

does not work anymore, but just always use variables solves that
