 ### Sending Probe Packets
 
-When a PTO timer expires, the sender MUST send one ack-eliciting packet as a
-probe, unless there is nothing to send. A sender MAY send up to two
-ack-eliciting packets, to avoid an expensive consecutive PTO expiration due
-to a single packet loss.
+When a PTO timer expires, a sender MUST send at least one ack-eliciting packet

+
+It is possible that the sender has no new or previously-sent data to send.  For
+example, this can happen when there is no new application data to send and all
+streams with data in flight are reset (see Section 13.2 of {{QUIC-TRANSPORT}}).

Yeah, good point. Thanks for the alternate example, @nibanks.
