Can an S series switch accurately forward multicast data packets if only Layer 3 multicast is configured

For S series switches, Layer 3 multicast protocols can identify only Layer 3 VLANIF interfaces. If only Layer 3 multicast is configured and Layer 2 multicast is not enabled, multicast data is replicated on a VLANIF interface and broadcast in the corresponding VLAN, but cannot be forwarded to an accurate physical interface.
When Layer 2 multicast is enabled in the VLAN corresponding to the VLANIF interface, multicast data can be accurately forwarded through a Layer 2 interface.
