technically, no.  but there's a quasi-hacky workaround for most situations.

the job's filesystem_domain doesn't actually have to match the machine's.  in
reality, it must just be a substring of the machine's filesystem_domain.

for example:
  job filesystem_domain is "edu".
  machine filesystem_domain is "wisc.edu"

that machine can run that job.

what we do here at the UW is set the filesystem_domain on machines that
don't have NFS to "cs.wisc.edu" and for machine that do have NFS we set
it to ".cs.wisc.edu".  all machines have AFS, just like your setup.

then, if you submit a job from a non-NFS machine it will run anywhere, and if
you submit from an NFS machine it will only run on an NFS machine.
