Newsd is a standalone local NNTP news server for private newsgroup serving on a single server. It is useful for serving private newsgroup(s) to an intranet or the Internet, and can act as a simple mail gateway. However, it does not interface with other news servers and cannot manage distributed news feeds, i.e. Usenet news.
