Through bound sessions and distributed transactions, it is possible for a transaction to be running under more than one session. In such cases, sys.dm_tran_session_transactions will show multiple rows for the same transaction_id, one for each session under which the transaction is running.
By executing multiple requests in autocommit mode using multiple active result sets (MARS), it is possible to have more than one active transaction on a single session. In such cases, sys.dm_tran_session_transactions will show multiple rows for the same session_id, one for each transaction running under that session.
