In establishing PA, does my buddy suck or blow?

It will help me understand the flow of traffic between users if I can pin down the process.

Say I am User A, with buddy User X. I think there are two possible scenarios for us to see each other's presence...

I Suck
I am waiting for User X to send me his presence status, after which I reply with mine

I Blow
I send my presence status to User X, and wait for him to reply.

Maybe I am simplifying too much, but I don't think we should both be sucking and blowing at the same time - too much traffic and confusion. But this must be the case, so what's the sequence?

Any ideas will be welcome. Pointers to documentation as well.
