There's a nice article on this in the SCO Technical Articles database,
http://www5.sco.com/. "b queue" is the batch queue used by batch(C).
It is limited precisely to prevent batch jobs from dragging down
interactive performance. You can change the limits. If you don't, your
batch jobs execute normally, but at a later time than originally
scheduled. That might or might not be a problem, depending on the
purpose of the batch jobs, and how long they are delayed.
