I would only like to stress that the only supported (and recommended)
replication solution in MySQL is
In this scenario you can have ONLY one master and (virtually) any number
There is NO other safe replication solution.
The terms you mention seems to refer to the same solution, where you
have two servers each acting as a master:
this is a non standard dangerous scenario in MySQL and requires
application logic awareness.
Hope to have brought a little light in your mind
