How is a Surety Bond different than an insurance policy?

A Surety Bond acts more like a co-signor than a regular insurance policy.  If Court deems fiduciary duty was violated and payment due, the insurance company issuing probate bond will pay the court.  However, unlike an insurance claim where insurance company indemnifies applicant, they will seek reimbursement for anything paid.
