My reason: If only few connections are public knowledge, but each of them - even the unknown ones - have a trade town, then I would think that this would be a spoil of ressources. And the religion of Zarakun is absolutely not in favour of spoiling any ressource.
But on the other hand: I'm not a native speaker, so I may be wrong.
I read it as "outside each of the few connections that are public knowledge". Though I'll admit I think that because its the one of the three possibilities that makes the most sense to me.
