It'll be one server at launch, Bobik calls this the "MMO" version. Back in the spring, they added the private server version, called "Your Own" or "YO". There are also several official servers in the server list, so you're not forced to select someone else's server.
The MMO version probably has another year or two of development, so in the meantime they have made the "Your Own" version as a way for people to get familiar with the game. You can no longer get into the Alpha for the MMO version, all that is available for purchase now is Your Own, which is what you'll find on Steam.
You can see a comparison of the two versions here
Nice to see a few familiar names.
