Does DTS estimate cardinality?

Does DTC estimate cardinality when Joining tables from 2 different servers so that the work is evenly distributed to those 2 servers based on cardinality?

We're using SSMS 2016.

The goal is to optimize transactions between the OLTP server and source servers. The source servers have indexes applied that I want to leverage during processing for JOINS and WHERE clauses.

    DTC just coordinates transactions and cannot even spell to opptimiizashon.

    The optimization is performed by the SQL Server instance where the query originates. To be able to perform the optimization, it queries the remote data source for information needed for optimization: that is table definition, available indexes and statistics.
