I thought the idea was:
if your full domain is: host1.some.network.example.com, then:
1. check if host1.some.network.example.com is a jabber server
2. else check if some.network.example.com is a jabber server
3. else check if network.example.com is a jabber server
4. else check if example.com is a jabber server
