That flag just tells the ct-ng scripts how many threads to use building the toolchain, aka what -jX. Zero is what should have been in the v5 config too, which means use a -jX equal to the number of processors.

Number of jobs a distcc server will accept is a completely different configuration. Personally I only use -j2 on v5 and -j3 on my A9 hosts. Since pre-processing and linking still takes place locally, I've noticed that things work better when it's not trying to pre-process 8 different jobs on tiny little ARM chip.
