Depends on the implementation.

In all cases, the -p argument given to the server will specify the number
of ports. In Jack1 it defaults to 256 but can be increased arbitrarily. In
Jack2, I don't know the default, but I do know that the upper limit is
fixed at build time. In most cases it will be 2048.

counted towards the total.
