How do redundant power supplies work on DL380 servers?

If I have redundant power supplies on a DL380 G7, does it share the power between both power supplies? Or does it only use one until it fails then jumps onto the next one?

I believe the best energy efficiency of a PSU is gotten when it's at a high load (don't have the numbers but 90% maybe?).
