Cisco ASA failover exec mate command

In the command below - executed from the primary in an ASA pair - the IP address refers to the IP address of the primary of the pair.  Correct?  I believe so - but would like verification.  

5510-1(config) # failover exec mate copy tftp:// disk0:///asa911-k8.bin

I think you can issue show failover command to verify asa failover

amigan_99Network EngineerAuthor Commented:
Yes.  But I was reading that you can copy files from disk0 or the primary member of a pair to the secondary member of the pair directly using the command in my initial question.  I think this is essentially saying "on the failover member of the pair, execute copy tftp://.."  So in effect this is a tftp get from the failover unit but you run this from the primary and the primary acts as a tftp server.
