They both advance.
Usually there are several tiebreakers that can be used. The best is of course some sort of direct playoff, but time may not permit this.
In Swiss events, the first tiebreaker is often an adjusted one. For instance, a common method is to calculate the sum of the total scores of each player's opponents (unplayed games like byes or forfeits count as 0), drop the highest and lowest, and the resulting number is the tiebreak score.
An easy secondary tiebreak is just to put the dropped scores back on, which will usually produce a winner. But if it doesn't there are other common tiebreak systems.
The Sonneborn-Berger system (which was designed for round robin events) allots each player the total score of the players he defeated, half the score of those he drew, and nothing for the games he lost.
The Cumulative system is thought by some to be the ideal Swiss tiebreaker: the players running scores on the wall charts are added up. A player who goes 1-2-3-4-4 in a five round event has played a stronger opposition than one who scores 0-1-2-3-4, although they are tied at the end, because Swiss tournaments pair players with similar scores, so the first example has been playing the tournament leaders since the first round, where the second has come in the back door against weaker players throughout.
These are the tiebreak systems most suitable for men's events. There has still never been an improvement on the tiebreak for women's events, naked jello wrestling.

In Swiss system where two or more players have the same score the tiebreak is "Buchholz" system developed by Bruno Buchholz in 1932. It sums up all the score of player's opponents thus it favors those who played better opponents with high score. If two or more players are still tied after the Buchholz then they will use the "Median-Buchholz" system where the best and worst score of a player's opponents are discarded and summed the remaining scores. I'm not so sure which of the two (Buchholz and Median-Buchholz) is to be used first.
well sometimes they have a blitz play off
