Calculation of total estimated time

I am curious about the calculation of total estimated time. Is it supposed to be a "total man-hours" type thing, or an actual estimate of completion date? In other words, is it just the sum of all time remaining or do you take into account that two people can be working simultaneously? For example, in a completion date scenario, if employee A and employee B both have bugs that will take them a week to fix, then the total estimate should be one week since they will finish at the same time. But would Fogbugz estimate 2 weeks? We haven't been using estimates, but we might start, and I want to make sure I understand the data we're getting. Thanks!

It's the total "man-hours".
