So, using the Sony wireless flash system, with a flash on the camera acting as control or triggering flash, and a remote flash "out there" as the unit being triggered, the question arises, how much flash does the control contribute to the scene?

It's my understanding that the answer is supposed to be None. The on-camera control flash is supposed to act as a trigger only, and is not supposed to add its light to the scene.

Your understanding is incorrect. The answer is A little. However, when HSS is engaged, then the answer is None.
