Steps to reproduce:

In TB 100 b3. Open an account at news.eternal-september.org. Configure a news account setting the server to always authenticate:
Tools -> Account Settings -> Server Settings
Always request authentication when connecting to this server

Actual results:

Server doesn't authenticate, you only get the "home made" newsgroups at news.eternal-september.org.

Expected results:

Server should prompt for credentials and then show the "real world" newsgroups.

I can confirm the behavior as described above, there is no prompt for credentials with JS NNTP for news.eternal-september.org.
