Legal Question in Landlord & Tenant Law in Pennsylvania

What happens when A has a judgment against B for $1000 and B gets a judgment against A for $2000? Does B still have to pay A $1000 (and A still has to pay B $2000) or does A only have to pay B $1000? Do the judgments offset each other?

Were these judgments entered at different times? Logically, they offset. A should mark his judgment as satisfied as against B and B should agree to satisfy his judgment against A once he gets $1000. However, there is no telling when one judgment will be paid or not so A has to pay B $2000 and B can pay A his $1000.
