      Description

      At least on Windows, Zabbix agent fails to start if Server= is commented out in the config and
      StartAgents>0. It fails with error like this:

      zabbix_agentd [8262]: ERROR: StartAgents is not 0, parameter "Server" must be defined

      However, default comments in zabbix_agentd.conf says that this parameters is not mandatory. And there is no dependency on StartAgents documented.
      Here how it looks like;

      ### Option: Server
      # List of comma delimited IP addresses (or hostnames) of Zabbix servers.
      # Incoming connections will be accepted only from the hosts listed here.
      # If IPv6 support is enabled then '127.0.0.1', '::127.0.0.1', '::ffff:127.0.0.1' are treated equally.
      #
      # Mandatory: no
      # Default:
      # Server=
      

      Please consider to change default, or document this situation more accurate.
