--- Comment #2 from Luuk <luuk34 at gmail.com> ---
For example this (http://effbot.org/zone/socket-intro-nntp.htm) website has an
explanation about this:

Client: GROUP comp.lang.python
Server: 211 367 13887 14268 comp.lang.python

Above means that articles 13887 until 14268 might(!) be available.
It's of no use to try to fetch an article outside this range,
and an article need not be present!

Better/other reference:

6.1.1.  GROUP  Usage

   Indicating capability: READER

     GROUP group

     211 number low high group     Group successfully selected
     411                           No such newsgroup

     group     Name of newsgroup
     number    Estimated number of articles in the group
     low       Reported low water mark
