Multiple server sections doesn't respect ssl_protocols

If we have multiple server sections like bellow

    server {
        listen         443 ssl;
        server_name    myserver1;        
        ssl_protocols  TLSv1.3;

    server {
        listen         443 ssl;
        server_name    myserver2;        
        ssl_protocols  TLSv1.2;

If a client that doesn't have support to TLSv1.3 tries to connect to myserver2, nginx fails to complete the handshake with a ProtocolVersion error. This bug is present in all nginx versions that supports TLSv1.3, as far as I can see. To fix, both servers sections must have support to TLSv1.2.

What should happen is that nginx should respect the protocol version of the respective server of the current connection. As an alternative, if not possible, nginx should fail to start/load the configuration, and throw an error alerting that all SSL server sections should have the same protocols, and the documentation should be updated accordingly.

Even if this can't be fixed, this should be documented. Current documentation has no mention to it, that I could find.
