Specifying a larger value for MAXSOCKETS than MXT in the CICS SIT

Since the maximum task specification (MXT) limits the number of active user tasks you can have in a CICS Transaction Server for z/OS (CICS TS) region, why would you want to specify the maximum number of ip sockets (MAXSOCKETS) as a higher value than MXT? Should you specify a value for MAXSOCKETS more like TCLASS, that is as a 'subset' of MXT?
