unison star topology

How exactly does unison star topology work? I sort of understand the concept that one machine acts as the HUB where every spoke syncs to it but is it just a concept and I have to implement it on my own or is this some kind of feature built into unison?

If I have to script this myself how exactly would I do it, what are the sync steps?

    Based on the link:
    You would have to set it up, there is no single option that say servera is the hub and everything is a spoke.
    The section, "Using Unison to Synchronize More Than Two Machines" outlines the process.
    i.e. if servera is to be the HUB, you would create a synchronization pair between servera and serverb and then servera and serverc, and then servera and serverd and then.......... servera and serverz.

    The document covers the options available i.e. from ssh, to sockets
