If articles are not accepted by
innd(8) will it discard the articles or continues passing 
to newsfeeds(5) entries for processing?

I found when I post to
the articles are not posted 
directly to newsgroups,
they all passed to external commands to send to mailing 
lists, then the lists send back
to to post to groups 
from localhost.
How innd(8) is configured to
pass articles from remote clients to external commands 
but posting to newsgroups 
from localhost? 
innd(8)filters + newsfeeds(5)?
