[ClusterLabs] Which node initiates fencing?

It's weird. Because we did tests and that did not happen.
There is a node (named Z) without stonith/sbd resources assigned at all and
but it was the node that sent the fencing request to a crashed node (X).
But this error appeared in its logs: "No route to host".
It's obvious for us that if SBD isn't running on Z, and there is no network
access to that crashed node (X), then based on your answer, node Y which
really had access to X via SBD had to initiate the fencing request. But
this did not happen.
In addition to this answer, I wonder if I could tell the cluster to avoid
sending fencing requests from specific nodes, or at the other side: Tell
the cluster which nodes are authorized to send fencing requests.
