FileMaker Server script engine in two-machine deployment?

Which component of FileMaker Server (Database Server, Web Publishing Engine, or Web Server) processes a FileMaker's scripts when run through WebDirect? I have a single server that is accessed from multiple locations across the country, and when some scripts are run that rapidly count changes, the server latency significantly affects the performance of the scripts. If the Web server or publishing engine in FileMaker is what processes these scripts, then I can use FileMaker's multi-machine setup to offload script processing on the worker machines, but if they are processed on the database server then this won't help. Thanks!
