[standards-jig] JEP-51 Server Transfer

I am building a load balancing system for the users of a jabber based virtual presence project http://jabber.bluehands.de/

I write a connection redirector and discovered:
Szenario: client connects and logs in to "jabber.org". Then the client gets an iq-"Server Transfer", disconnects, and connects to another server e.g. "server2.jabber.org". How do other clients and servers (s2s) know that the client is connected to "server2.jabber.org". They will still know the user as "user at jabber.org" and send messages through s2s to "jabber.org", not to "server2.jabber.org" where the user is connected.

Questions to the public: does JEP-51 Server Transfer work, if messages (IMs) arrive from other users in other domains? What did I miss?
