[torqueusers] definition of "master" and "head"

What is the correct definition of the terms master and head?

Are these the same name for the node or machine that pbs_server and
the scheduler run on?

Or is the "head" where pbs_server runs, and "master" is the first node
assigned to a queued job, which generally controls an mpi job?

Is there another term for this first node assigned by torque?
Control node?
