Question regarding "reset-both" action

I've been seeing alot of Code Executions on Palo Alto Threat logs, most of them are not applicable on our servers and had an action of "Reset-both". Did the Firewall completely blocked the connection or there's a connection happened but did not complete since both server and client had a RST.

 

Also same on application based, there's a lot of "Reset-both" teamviewer connections on my logs, is it advisable to completely blocked it so it won't appear on my firewall logs?

The 'reset-*' action will inject a RST packet into the tcp stream, breaking the connection.

So a connection exists, a threat is detected and blocked, and a RST is sent to end the session

So  in this case PA sends the reset connection to both pc and server at same time right?
