fontpath in xfs does not match xset

I am on RedHat 8.
The fontpaths displayed when I do a chkfontpath -l is different from that when I do a "xset q".
In my XF86Config file I have the following "File" items:

FontPath "unix/:7100"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/"
In the xset output I don't see the "TTF" dir but it is in the chkfontpath output.
The gedit program has available a "zysong" font which is in a dir listed by chkfontpath but not xset. How can I find out which fontpath set the application is using?

Also what is the proper "server" paramter to use when running fslsfonts? I only have one machine and presume that is the fontserver. When I run
fslsfonts -server tcp/myHost:7100
it cannot open the server.
