It claims: "One instance where Nagios checks the status of a host is
when a service check results in a non-OK status".
That statement could use some clarification. Does it check the host
status each time a service check results in a non-Ok status, or only
when the service status changes? (The former would be more
reasonable, IMHO, but the latter is what appears to be the case).

So is it stipulated that the current behavior is weird?
