My main news account has recently expired, and I had a backup configured as well (much more expensive per MB). When the main account expired, the server refused log ins, and sabnzb then proceeded to download from the backup, and drain all the backup credit I had.
This behaviour is expensive. I believe a better behaviour is to use the backup only if main is accessible, but the ARTICLE is not available. An inaccessible main (whether due to routing, bad login credentials, or expired account) should not trigger the backup account to be used.
