I've been following the VXLAN white paper for CE switches to configure an All active VXLAN gateway.  There is one bit in the example which does not make sense, as follows:

[~Spine1] interface eth-trunk 1
[*Spine1-Eth-Trunk1] service type tunnel
[*Spine1-Eth-Trunk1] quit
[*Spine1] interface 10ge 1/0/4
[*Spine1-10GE1/0/4] eth-trunk 1
[*Spine1-10GE1/0/4] quit
[*Spine1] commit

Thie white papaer says the following for this interface tunnel:

Service loopback is enabled on the Eth-Trunk to loop back service packets of the
VXLAN Layer 3 gateway

This interface is for the VXLAN gateway but it doesn't mention where this interface connects to? I'm assuming this interface connects to another spine switch?  if that's the case how will this work if the other switch is in a different data centre?
