This will work fine, as will "hkp://minsky.surfnet.nl".

This will work fine as well.

This one wouldn't. 0x%S isn't a key ID, but if you put a key ID
there, it'll work fine too.
Basically it works this way when you have automatic key retrieval
turned on: if the sig-keyserver-url is a keyserver (i.e. not a full
HTTP path), then GPG will do the right thing and try and fetch the key
in question (i.e. the one that issued the signature). If it's a full
HTTP path, GPG will retrieve it directly.
