I'm a bit confused about this too. Maybe it's too early in the morning,
so I wrote this little test program:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
        int a = atoi(argv[1]);
        int b = atoi(argv[2]);

        if (!a && !b)
                printf("A");
        else
                printf("B");

        if (!(a || b))
                printf("A");
        else
                printf("B");

        printf("\n");

        return 0;
}

Andy, could you give an example of two values which will print something
other than "AA" or "BB"?

Heck, gcc even compiles these two conditions the same way:

        if (!a && !b)
    11a8:       83 7d f8 00             cmpl   $0x0,-0x8(%rbp)
    11ac:       75 12                   jne    11c0 <main+0x57>
    11ae:       83 7d fc 00             cmpl   $0x0,-0x4(%rbp)
    11b2:       75 0c                   jne    11c0 <main+0x57>
                printf("A");
    11b4:       bf 41 00 00 00          mov    $0x41,%edi
    11b9:       e8 a2 fe ff ff          callq  1060 <putchar@plt>
    11be:       eb 0a                   jmp    11ca <main+0x61>
        else
                printf("B");
    11c0:       bf 42 00 00 00          mov    $0x42,%edi
    11c5:       e8 96 fe ff ff          callq  1060 <putchar@plt>

        if (!(a || b))
    11ca:       83 7d f8 00             cmpl   $0x0,-0x8(%rbp)
    11ce:       75 12                   jne    11e2 <main+0x79>
    11d0:       83 7d fc 00             cmpl   $0x0,-0x4(%rbp)
    11d4:       75 0c                   jne    11e2 <main+0x79>
                printf("A");
    11d6:       bf 41 00 00 00          mov    $0x41,%edi
    11db:       e8 80 fe ff ff          callq  1060 <putchar@plt>
    11e0:       eb 0a                   jmp    11ec <main+0x83>
        else
                printf("B");
    11e2:       bf 42 00 00 00          mov    $0x42,%edi
    11e7:       e8 74 fe ff ff          callq  1060 <putchar@plt>
