[pulseaudio-discuss] pulseaudio newbie questions

I have some newbie question about Pulseaudio. Firstly, let me explain 
what I've got working for now. I am now able to stream music from one 
Raspberry Pi to another Raspberry Pi. The receiving end is fitted with 
high quality DAC, and connected to an amplifier.

My first question:
1) is the receiving end, in Pulseaudio terms, a client, or a server?

I want a multi-room solution, streaming the same music from one sender 
to multiple Pi's, all connected to an amplifier. My second question:

2) Is it possible to distribute music from one sender to multiple 
receivers at the same time?

Maybe these questions are just too 'newbie', but I guess it will help 
me, or please give directions where to look.

Thanks in advance,
