If this parameter is enabled, then explicit (from the client) and implicit (via the scavenging) name releases are propagated to the other servers directly, even if there are still other addresses active, this applies to SPECIAL GROUP (2) and MULTIHOMED (3) entries. Also the replication conflict merge algorithm for SPECIAL GROUP (2) entries discards replica addresses where the address owner is the local server, if the address was not stored locally before. The merge result is propagated directly in case an address was discarded. A Windows servers doesn't propagate name releases of SPECIAL GROUP (2) and MULTIHOMED (3) entries directly, which means that Windows servers may return different results to name queries for SPECIAL GROUP (2) and MULTIHOMED (3) names. The option doesn't have much negative impact if Windows servers are around, but be aware that they might return unexpected results.
