Is this a broken axle?

mazda cx5
Just bought an 04 mazda 6s wagon and doing some minor repairs. Noticed some oil leaking from this area in pics below. Compared to the driver side, the passenger side seems pushed in. Is this just a broken axle? Got one quote to replace the whole passenger axle for $199.

Difficult to say from the photo. If the axle were broken I would assume the car wouldn't drive.
That is a pretty good price for an axle replacement. My only worry is the quality of the axle being used.
