No, by default X never uses a network connection when the connection is to
local machine. It is done over a socket

In fact, by default, X doesn't listen to any network interface at all, that's
something you have to enable manually

I don't think there is anything built into the protocol to handle that, but
principle it should be possible to write something like an X proxy that sends
the displays to multiple x servers. kind of like an X multiplexer

I have heard that NoMachine's NX 3.0 (new X protocol) can handle it,
which means, that future
FreeNX server (included with openSUSE) will also be able to do it.
