No, Sergio is partly right. Very old versions of jabberd14 used
_jabber. However the latest release (1.6, released 2006) uses
_xmpp-server, and as far as I can tell it was supported all the way
back in 1.4 (~2004). In practice I have never encountered a server
that used solely _jabber for SRV lookups.
