    when not engaged its more like an all wheel drive but when locked will lock into providing a 50/50 split to front and rear axles of drive no matter what so that one axle can be bogged spinning and the other axle will turn theoretically at the same rate. It works like a traction lock or limited slip diff for a transfer case.
    If you go here and read through this article right to the end it has a whole section on the principles of the centre diff lock.
