It is - Condor figures out that it can't talk to it, and then it
ignores it for the rest of the negotiation cycle. In the stable
case, the ad for the schedd it can't contact will drop from the 
collector in 15 minutes, so on average it will only try two 
negotiation cycles to contact it, if it's truly gone. 

I think that's probably the right thing to do - if we can't contact
it in a negotiation cycle, give up for now. 5 minutes later, in the
next negotiation cycle, try again, in case that eariler failure was
temporary. If it's still down, ignore it again. In the next negotiation
cycle, the ad will most likely be gone if the machine is really gone, 
and so we won't try and contact it. 

It'd certainly be nice if we did a non-blocking connect to the schedd,
so we didn't wait a few minutes to figure out we can't connect to it,
and hopefully someday we will.
