IS the run time library just some dynamicly linked library files?

The C standard library for example has some standard functions like printf,.

What exactly the relation between the standard library and the run time library ?

Is the run time library just the dll’s (under windows) part of the standard library? so when I call the printf in my program , the compiler links my program “dynamically” to the dll file(MSVCR100D.dll) that exports the printf so both my program and that dll are loaded in memory at loading time ?

is that dll (MSVCR100D.dll) that has the exported printf is exactly the C run time library or the run time library is something else???
