I don't think that you can do that.

OK, but how do you split the 16 slots on the 4 machines ? This is done 
by SGE according to the allocation policy of the PE (f.e. $fill_up).

There is no rule, everything is dynamical. For each machine, SGE knows
the maximum number of slots, how many slots are in use and the load;
based on this data and the PE allocation policy, SGE will allocate for
the job a number of slots on a number of machines.
