The additonal metaserver is a dynamic IP (metaserver.servegame.org),
currently pointing to a metaserver at netrek.beeseenterprises.com.
Functionally, this metaserver is completely identical to all other
metaservers.  This metaserver acts like any of the other 3 metaservers in
the client, in that all listed servers are aggregated into the server list.
If client is in metaBroncoOnly mode, it also behaves like other metaservers
in that non-bronco entries are ignored.  Current policy on that metaserver
mirrors metaserver.us.netrek.org.  Any netrek server is welcome to solicit
to it, including bronco, sturgeon, paradise, hockey and chaos.
