If you are the bus system ("DBUS_BUS_SYSTEM"), avahi daemon is a
client for the bus, so it can invoke method on any other client
connected on the bus as long as the bus security policy allows it. So
there is not really a notion of server, you only have client
connecting to the dbus server.

I hope i understood and answered your question?
