Hi Joel,

In that case I would propose the following text:

"Destination MAC: If the BFD session is not using the Management VNI,
the destination MAC address MUST be the address
associated with the destination VTEP.  If the BFD session uses
the Management VNI, it may use any MAC address, since use of the
Management VNI ensures that these packets will never be forwarded to a VM.
The MAC address may be configured, or it may be learned via
a control plane protocol. The details of how the MAC address
to be used is obtained are outside the scope of this document."

That said, for non-Management VNI, do we want to allow for flexibility
for an implementation to use a multicast MAC of their choosing?  If so, we
should probably add a sentence for that too.

Thanks,
Anoop
