Is it the valve cover gasket or the head gasket that keep antifreeze out of the oil?

The head gasket seals the head to the engine block. Coolant and oil flow through the head. The gasket prevents then from mixing together. The valve cover gasket only prevents oil from splashing onto the engine and exposing the valve train and moving parts to the outside of the engine. No coolant makes contact with the valve cover gasket.

Does oil residue around the head gasket definitively indicate a replacement of the head gasket is needed?
