I used the term incorrectly. When I said series, I meant the wiring is run from one jack to the next to the next and so on, then one dropped to the basement. Although it's unlikely an entire house would be wired that way in which case there would be multiple drops. Because the OP said there is only one drop, it could be there are very few jacks (1 first floor, 1 second floor)and both are in the same end of the house the installer could of very well wired them together with one drop to the basement.
