 Well,  several  screens is a rather ancient attempt to resolving
multihead configurations. It is not well supported  by  apps  and
DEs now.

 Currently,  the  usual  way  is  a single (virtual) Screen, with
xrandr managing multiple monitors on it.
 In xorg.conf it is specified in a Display SubSection of a Screen
 Some good examples can be found e.g. here:
