There are several things to consider here.  By default, guix-daemon
creates a single job, so that single job will end up being built
locally, unless you spawn, say, two “guix build” commands in parallel
(the number of jobs is per client.)

Running “guix-daemon --max-jobs=0” should force all builds to be

I *think* “guix build --max-jobs=0” should give the same result.

Alternately, if you run “guix build --max-jobs=2”, presumably half of
the builds will be offloaded.

Let us know if that works for you.
