[CentOS] vsftp and nonpriv_user option question

thhis didnt go through completely the first time.
 
 
I am a bit confused as to how this works.  
I created a local unpriveleged user (with /bin/nologin shell).
i uncommented the line containing 
nopriv_user=ftpsecure
and restarted vsftp.
 
I am confused as to what is supposed to happen.
Shuld the daemon /usr/sbin/vsftpd be run as root or should it be
ftpsecure?
 
Or is the account only used to login to transfer files?
 
Any help would be appreciated.
