Some on camera metz flashes are said to be capable of balanced fill flash. From the description it says it is 85/15. It also seems to imply that it has two flash tubes on it. If I am not misunderstanding that there are two tubes what is the point of them? They are on almost the same axis. Is one just used for times when lots of flash is needed and the other used when less flash is needed?
I understand fill flash, very useful in portraits, but don't understand this.

Note: this is cross posted in portraits. Please delete if that is too bad of a thing. Normally I wouldn't do it, but I need the answer soon as I am thinking of bidding on one.
