No. Mainframes have been called servers since the word "server" came into
fashion. The new marketing hype from IBM is the eServer xSeries, iSeries,
pSeries and zSeries. If you look in the explanations on their website, it
says that xSeries are intel servers, iSeries are AS/400 servers, pSeries
is RS/6000 servers, and zSeries are mainframe servers.
