Agents Node Type Classification - "RunOnAllNodes" - Standard or Advanced Agents

As we have RunOnAllNodes option in Node Type Classification for Agents from PRPC v7.3 to increase the performance by balancing the load across the Nodes in a cluster.

My Question/doubt here is -

1) Does this RunOnAllNodes option is only applicable for Standard agents, As the Standard Agents works on the Queued items. So these items on the queue may be shared across the nodes to balance the load and work faster. Please clarify.

2) Does this RunOnAllNodes option will also be applicable for Advanced Agents also ?

If Yes, How it will handle the load. For example, In the Agent Activity I'm opening the Cases using Obj-Browse/ Report Definition and opening one by one and updating the cases in the list. How it will share the work load if it runs on all nodes. Or this RunOnAllNodes option is only applicable for Standard Agent and this is not applicable for Advanced and Is Advanced Agent should run only on one node, as we have option for Advanced Agents.

Please clarify.
