Command line argument - Mode Flag

Hi, i'm a bit confused with the requirement on the mode flag in command line.
The requirement says:
The mode flag must be either "server", indicating the server program must run, "alone", indicating standalone mode, or left out entirely, in which case the network client and gui must run.

I'm wondering the difference between the "server" flag and blank flag. My understanding is if we leave the flag out, it will run in server mode. Is this correct?
