Running SQL jobs under different accounts

Hi

We have 2 identical jobs on 2 identical databases running on different servers, both the same build and service pack.  One is running properly when scheduled and the other isn't - the job is backing up databases to a linked device

How do I find out what account the job is running under, is it the agent that dictates this or do the account used to set up the job or the job owner come into play?

thanks
