Problems understanding /etc/sudoers file


According to the documentation, modifications to this file may allow some users to execute commands with sudo privilegies on a remote hosts.

user1 192.168.1.14=(user2:group1) ALL

My question is, how can be possible to allow local users to run commands on a remote host if they dont have accounts on the specified host??

I also have problems with the understanding of the term running commands as other users (or groups)?
