cloning a safety clone

If I clone a safety clone (for backup purposes), am I also copying the shared stuff, because of the symbolic links?

When I want to backup (for backup, not cloning purposes) with a system that has a safety clone, should I be backing up from the "main" drive/partitition, or from the safety clone as the source?

I'm sorry to be posing all these questions....SD! is a very powerful program, it seems, that works great magic "under the hood". But, it is also more than a bit of a black box (not a criticism, just an observation), even to those of us rather savvy about OS X but who are NOT at all savvy about the Unix underpinnings of the OS. Knowing more about what it does is helpful, I suspect, to getting the most out of the software (not to mention avoiding disasters by making bad assumptions!)
