Actually you can also use BBGHOSTS in hobbitserver.cfg, which is more
convenient I think. The man page unhelpfully doesn't list what BBGHOSTS of 0
does, but the cfg file does, so... you want a BBGHOSTS of 0.  Or make sure
the bb-hosts file are the same on both servers...  It is designed so that
they can be.
