Is it possible to set the default distributed search group to nothing but only search within itself (as my search head is also the indexer)?

If i set the distsearch.conf as below, the search request did not really execute on itself.

[distributedSearch:A]
default = false
servers = machineA:8089

[distributedSearch:B]
default = true
servers =

[distributedSearch]
servers = machineA:8089

Finally, we setup like that to search itself too.

[distributedSearch:A]
default = false
servers = machineA:8089

[distributedSearch:B]
default = true
servers =localhost:localhost

[distributedSearch]
servers = machineA:8089, localhost:localhost
