General Display question

Just a general question on how VNC is rendered. My XP notebook is having
display trouble and just for curiousity's sake, I VNC'd into it from
another XP machine and a Win2K machine. The display looks just as bad on
the client computers, as it does on my XP notebook (VNC server).
My question is this, where is the VNC window rendered? On the Client, or
the Server? It would seem to me that if my notebook's video card is going
dead, then I could VNC into the notebook as a client and have a clear
picture to work with, as the client's video card is fine. This just isn't
the case for me, which makes me think the the VNC window is rendered on
the Server and sent to the client as a garbled picture.
Thanks in advance,
