Samba mechanics question

I was looking at the operation of samba and was curious as to how it worked in
terms of the TCP connections that were established.  For a given client/server
pair, does only one TCP session get established?  Or can multiple (simultaneous)
sessions get established.  For example, if one was transfering 10 files, does 10
parallel sessions get established or is the typical operation to establish one
session and serially request the files?
