Every Layer within The Pits of The Abyss contains a single Legion of (nominally) 666 Pit Demons, which take on a form specific to the Pit in which the Layer falls.  In addition, the Pit itself contains an additional 7 Legions of 666 Pit Demons which answer to the command of the Prince of the Pit.  For Pits which don't have an established Prince, one of the Knighted Unholy Beasts is assigned by The Demogorgon to take command of the Pit Legions until a Prince is established.

The manifest Aspect of the Pit Demons is determined by the Prince of the Pit, who is able to reshape the entire race of Pit Demons at will, though such a change requires substantial expense of energy, so is done rarely, usually only when a new Prince takes command of a Pit, to mark the Pit as its own.

While Pit Demons generally reside within their Layer of Hell, they are often sent to the mortal realm, either individually or in groups, to spread the corruption represented by the Pit.  Just how a Legion of Pit Demons is used is almost entirely up to the whims of the ruling Arch-Demon.
