In the olden days, the penciled page was physically handed (in the studio) or shipped to the inker, and the combined work appeared on the same physical page.
These days, everyone works from home and communicates electronically. The pencil artist can scan and send a high-resolution copy of the penciled page, and the inker can print it out in blueline format (light blue does not photocopy or can be easily eliminated during scanning) for inking. So there are two original art pages: the penciled and the blueline-inked.
