It means it's listening for connections and will send information out, whatever is asked for.
There is one, and only one, application which needs server rights in ZA, and that is svchost aka Generic Host Process for Windows Services. Do not give it Internet Server permission. Do give it Trusted Server permission as it's essential to working the internet or file sharing on a LAN.

Nothing needs internet server. If you use VPN, include the IPs in the trusted zone and it'll work.

Actually, for p2p you may have to give those p2p programs internet server rights but that's a big exposure to risks.

Should "Spooler SubSystem App" have Internet rights? ZoneAlarm seems to have automatically added rights to it.

No if you don't have a network printer, give it one check from the left.
Spooler subsystem is for printing over a network.
If you have a network printer then give it two checks from the left - just in the trusted column - if the printer is on your LAN, inside of the router. If the printer is on another subnet - then you may need some changes. Best, put "?" so it'll ask you.

Most likely the IP address of the router you use.
If it is, then using that address you get to the router's web interface.
