	Yes, this server must be an exit node.

: using Tor, will their circuit exit from this Tor server?

	No.  The exit policy is honored. If example.com is a tor exit
	server, but it doesn't allow port 80 to exit, you will not
	extend a circuit through tor to get to example.com:80. 
	The traffic will go through another exit server that allows port 80.
