Citrix XenApp

I'm quite new to installing new apps, and understanding what config file does what.
I am trying to get splunk installed and monitoring set-up on a test basis for our citrix farm.
In a bit of a mess, sorry if the below is not great to read.

At the moment, i have 1 forwarder and 1 deployment/search/indexer server.

Strangley we are getting some info through, but I am seeing the following in the splunkd logs....

but not sure why or where this is configured.........

Basically, On the PST04 (forwader)
It is trying to look in the XA5 Broker app, we only had the XA5 Server app on there. Which i thought, and still tempted to think is correct.
But i put the Broker app on anyway just to see, but the actual file it is looking for is in the Server app, not the broker app. (does that make sense?)

So, not sure where this is configured. Or if i should just copy that 1 file into the broker app. (I feel like I shouldn’t)
What i thought, the broker app should be on the deployment/searchhead, (pj-test) and the server app went on the forwarders. (PST Servers)

Also seeing this....
