What LIF roles does clustered Data ONTAP use to establish connections to remote servers?

A useful to know extract from the above:

Clustered Data ONTAP 8.1.x/8.2:
- Sessions established to SNMP and NTP servers use the node-mgmt LIF per node.
- AutoSupport is delivered from the node-mgmt LIF per node.
