That only limits the number of jobs that can be running at one time.
It doesn't limit the number of users that can be running jobs at one

Like I said, users can submit an unlimited number of jobs to the
queue. However, only two users can have jobs running at one time. One
user can have one job running and the other can have 351, but I can't
have three users running jobs at one time, but a third user could have
jobs waiting in the queue.
