[OSRM-talk] Clarification about "shortest path"

I successfully use OSRM for months, and I would like to thank the
developing team for this wonderful project.
I have always wondered if the "viaroute" query in server API actually
computes shortest path (distance) or fastest path (time).
The official github wiki says "shortest", but this page
"fastest". When I compare results with YOURS, OSRM seems to compute
fastest paths. Then, is there a way to compute real shortest paths ?
Will alternative routes be a mean to get correct shortest paths ?
Thank you in advance,
