I have the following experiment

There are m indistinguishable balls and n indistinguishable bins of size s. For each ball, we pick a bin. If the bin still has capacity, the ball is placed inside it. If the bin is full, the ball is discarded.

What I am curious to discover is the probability distribution of the total number of balls in all of bins at the end of the experiment.
