As per my knowledge, Diameter is a peer to peer protocol and based on the messages it is decided which one is a client and which one is server. There is a convention if a node send request it is considered as client and the node which responds to request, is considered as server.
For example: In LTE network MME and HSS both the nodes work as Diameter nodes.
For few messages, MME is Diameter Client and for few other messages HSS is client.

How the scenario will be handled in case both client as well as server sends CER towards each other ?

I saw Capabilities-Exchange-Request and Capabilities-Exchange-Answer messages. In CER message there are two places where Vendor-Id AVP is present, one as an independent AVP and the other one as part of Vendor-Specific-Application-Id AVP. If both of them are present in request message then both will be having same value or can hold different values.
