   On a multi-access network, one of the PIM-SM (PIM Sparse Mode)
   routers is elected as a Designated Router.  One of the
   responsibilities of the Designated Router is to track local multicast
   listeners and forward data to these listeners if the group is
   operating in PIM-SM.  This document specifies a modification to the
   PIM-SM protocol that allows more than one of the PIM-SM routers to
   take on this responsibility so that the forwarding load can be
   distributed among multiple routers.
