GATK Queue data distribution

For scatter operation, how is the data divided among processors?
For example, I have given 1 million loci to be processed and the scatter count is 2. Then the first processor gets the first 500 thousand loci and the other one get the rest. Is that so? That is, is the data divided equally according to the number of reference positions?
