Servers require faster CPU's, more memory and faster hard drives. Clients provide a place where the user can physically sit and access the server without actually touching the server. Rights can be assigned to the client to protect the server and it's data.

A server can be the protector of your network, as in a firewall. The client accesses the internet through the firewall.

A server can provide a printing pool for clients on the network, as in a print server. The client prints through the print server. The strain on the client is less this way.

A server can store massive amounts of data as in a database server. Clients access the
data on that database sever. This requires less storage space on the client.

A server can provide a storage place for applications, as in an application server.
The client runs applications through the application server so less space is required on the client.

In NT, it is allegedly 2 registry entries.

Any machine which provides a service such as storing files, is a server

Any machine which accesses services on another machine is a client.

Therefore windows NT workstations can actually be servers or clients, so can NT Servers. An NT server connected to another machine is a client of that machine.

No mystery. Don't read more into the names than is really there.
