You can have it both ways.

You can run an XVNCServer which will give you your own X session,  
accessible by VNC. This is for all intents and purposes the same as if  
you were running the X server on the netbook, though you can  
disconnect at any time and come back to see the X session the way you  
left it.

You can also run session sharing which will provide a VNC connection  
to the active X session, so you can use the VNC client on the netbook  
to see exactly what's displayed on the other computer.
