Somewhere between the two. No-one deliberately targeted hospitals or dressing stations, but then again, the artillery of the day wasn't a precision weapon, and aerial spotting was in its infancy. This meant that a lot of shells were sent on the way in the vague hope that they'd hit something important, or at least cause some inconvenience.

They weren't officially targeted. But with the millions of rounds of artillery that both sides fired, and the fact that their methods of directing artillery weren't the most accurate, more than one hospital had a few rounds of artillery land in the recovery room or even in the middle of surgery.
