what is the difference between a heading and a section heading?

SC 2.4.6 speaks about headings, whereas 2.4.10 speaks about section 

Do both refer to different things or are these terms synonyms?

I'd like to know this for the translation of the WCAG2.0 document into 
Dutch. Can we translate headings and section headings with the same term or 
do we need to keep a difference?
