What is the role of drawable parameter in XCreatePixmap()

We pass a drawable parameter as input while calling XCreatePixmap().Now
this drawable can be either a X window Id(which we got from a previous
call to XCreateWindow) Or, this drawable could be a X pixmap id(which we
got from a previous XCreatePixmap() call).
I checked the xlib manual and it mentions that this drawable parameter
is used to just determine the screen number, where the new pixmap will
be created. I want to know is there any other significance of this
drawable? Is there any difference between the behavior of when we pass X
window id as drawable to XCreatePixmap and when we pass a X pixmap id as
drawable to another XCreatePixmap call.
