They are different fluids. If it's brake fluid that is leaking, then it's the master. If it's power steering fluid leaking, then it is the hydroboost.

Is the weep hole where the hydroboost bolts to the brake master cylinder?

Quick note: If any question which leaking if too slow to see or observe low fluid levels know that the PS fluid is an oil and brake fluid in NOT. Brake fluid will rinse off your finger with plain water, PS fluid will not,
