When Using NAS, Does Data Go Direct From Camera To NAS Or Pass Through Server First?

I think I already know the answer to this but I am hoping someone can provide some clarification. When you use a NAS for video surveillance, and you setup the NAS in the VMS (in this case it's Spectrum/NX Witness) does the data move directly to the NAS from the cameras or is the data passing through the server first. This question is pure curiosity.
