Why does host have to have file open?


New to Filemaker, so was surprised and intrigued as to why does the computer that one wants to set up as the host have to have the database open?  Does this only apply in a network setup where Filemaker Server is not employed?  We wish to run 3 Filemaker Pro users, with one designated as Primary machine, but this means that machine needs to have file open, even if user is not working or using it.  How would this be managed if the Users were in a different building?
