No, I mean the emacs server, i.e. the one started by M-x server-start.

No, the emacs server keeps track of the number of emacsclients that are
still connected, when that number is > 0 and you are doing C-x C-c it
will warn that emacsclients are still connected 
(see server-kill-emacs-query-function)

In the case described here, there are no emacsclients that are still
connected (they have died when X has died, or have been killed with
xkill), but the server thinks otherwise.
