I'm not sure that's true - X protocol doesn't transmit screen images,
whereas VNC does. VNC has a lot more data to carry. I'd be very
surprised if VNC requires less bandwidth than a remote X session.
Carrying a remote VNC session through X protocol (by using a remote X
VNC client) is silly, though, I agree, but if the X VNC client is local,
the bandwidth used should be the same as if it's a native VNC client
(although the speed of rendering might not be as good!).
