Help ! I'm not sure I understand what the peer statement does

Whats the difference between (two servers, serverA, serverB):

Server A ntp.conf

server time.windows.com
peer serverB
...

Server B ntp.conf

server time.windows.com
peer serverB

...

And

Server A ntp.conf

server time.windows.com
peer serverB
...

Server B ntp.conf

server time.windows.com
server serverB




Also, how would server A know the difference between ServerB's ntpd
talking to it and ServerC performing 'ntpdate ServerA' ??
