The former, of course. The text before the table says:
The host (GDB) sends COMMANDs, and the target (the debugging stub
incorporated in your program) sends a RESPONSE.
This is to say, _all_ the commands in the table are sent from host to
target; the stab on the target only sends responses to those commands.
Please suggest how to make this point more clear in the manual.
