Sure. From the man page:

       accept = [host:]port

           accept connections on specified host:port

           If no host specified, defaults to all IP addresses for the local

       connect = [host:]port
           connect to a remote host:port

           If no host is specified, the host defaults to localhost.

           Multiple connect options are allowed in a single service section.

           If host resolves to multiple addresses and/or if multiple connect
           options are specified, then the remote address is chosen using a
           round-robin algorithm.
