By what I understand you want the following: a NNTP-server that has some
(local, popular) groups on its own disk and which will fetch other groups by
forwarding the NNTP-requests to some other server, sort of a NNTP-proxy.

Well, I do not have such a system, but if anyone can make some smart
suggestions on how to set this up (or even a pure NNTP-proxy?), I'd like to
hear, too.
