[buster-discuss] aP_scale for multiple crystals

I'm reading https://www.globalphasing.com/autoproc/wiki/index.cgi?ExampleUsage#combine with regard to performing scaling using multiple crystals.
I have pointless output (from mosflm runs) of each crystal. I use combine_files to ensure consistent indexing and to output a single mtz with (in this case) three batches corresponding to three crystals.
The steps after this on the wiki:
 Use a constant scale factor and specifying each batch separately.
 Try smooth scale factors as a function of rotation "ROTATION SPACING" etc.
In both cases, by specifying each batch separately, what is happening?
Are the scale factors determined by ensuring  corresponding reflections in each dataset are similar AND  that their symmetry related reflections within each dataset are similar?
At the end of this run, I obtain three separate files (each corresponding to different batches). However, I would like a single file consisting of the most complete dataset ? Would I specify -b 1000-4000?
