PUBLISHINGSERVERNAME is used in all types of replication.
PUBLISHINGSERVERNAME is used when a database mirroring session exists on the publication database between the Publisher and a mirror partner instance.
This function must be executed within the context of a publication database. When PUBLISHINGSERVERNAME is executed on a publication database at the mirror server instance of SQL Server, the name of the Publisher instance from which the published database originates is returned. When this function is executed on a database at the mirror server instance that is not published or that is published from the mirror server instance after a failover, the name of the mirror server instance is returned. When this function is executed at the original Publisher instance, the name of the Publisher is returned.
